Local buckling of fiber reinforced plastic composite structural members with open and closed cross sections
The local buckling analysis of fiber reinforced plastic (FRP) composite open and closed thin-walled section beams and columns is presented. Explicit expressions are developed for axially loaded and...

Flexural–torsional buckling of open section composite columns with shear deformation
Abstract The paper presents the stability analysis of axially loaded, thin-walled open section, orthotropic composite columns. Vlasov's classical theory is modified to include both the transverseExpand

A Model of Embedded Fiber Optic Fabry-Perot Temperature and Strain Sensors
A model was developed for embedded intrinsic and extrinsic Fabry-Perot fiber optic sensors. This model relates the strains and the temperature changes in the material surrounding the sensor to theExpand

Analysis of Thin-Walled Composite Beams with Arbitrary Layup
A beam theory for open and closed section, thin-walled, composite beams is presented. The layup of each wall segment is arbitrary, the effects of shear deformation and restrained warping areExpand

Masonry Strengthened with FRP Subjected to Combined Bending and Compression, Part II: Test Results and Model Predictions
This paper presents the results of experiments performed on masonry beams subjected to four-point bending. Four types of fiber-reinforced plastics (FRP) were used as reinforcement material: choppedExpand

Effect of the Coating on the Stresses and Strains in an Embedded Fiber Optic Sensor
Coated fiber optic sensors operating on interferometric principles have recently been considered for measuring strains and temperature inside composite materials. Owing to the complex interactionsExpand

Effects of Shear Deformation and Restrained Warping on the Displacements of Composite Beams
This paper compares the results of different beam theories with finite element calculations and determines simple rules which designers may apply to insure simplified theories give acceptableExpand

Approximate Analysis of the Temperature Induced Stresses and Deformations of Composite Shells
In this paper simple formulas are presented which can be used to estimate the response of composite plates and shells to hygrothermal loads. The layup of the shell can be arbitrary (i.e., it can beExpand
