This poster describes a project to design apparatus for the production and testing of glass fibre rope reinforced concrete split beams.

This project aimed to design and produce appropriate apparatus for the production and testing of glass fibre rope reinforced concrete split beams in accordance with BS EN 10080:2005.

Reseacrh funded by: Undergraduate Research Grant 2017/18

Summary:

A split beam consists of two blocks of rectangular cross-section joined by their primary axial reinforcement and a simple steel hinge.

The aim for these tests was to determine the behavior of the bond between continuous fibre ropes and concrete under flexure behavior rather than traditional pull-out conditions.

LVDTs were to be employed to measure the slip of the axial reinforcement whilst a load was applied. These aims required the design of new beam formwork, testing equipment, rope clamps, LVDT frames for slip measurement and an appropriate concrete mix.
