Bond strength of steel hollow sections using carbon fibre reinforced polymer composites

Shahanara, Kaniz (2013) Bond strength of steel hollow sections using carbon fibre reinforced polymer composites. Masters by Research thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


This research was a step forward in developing bond strength of CFRP strengthened steel hollow sections under tension loads. The studies have revealed the ultimate load carrying capacity of the CFRP strengthened steel hollow sections and the stress distribution for different orientations of the CFRP sheet at different layers. This thesis presents a series of experimental and finite element analysis to determine a good understanding of the bond characteristics of CFRP strengthened steel hollow sections.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
