This paper presents the results from a research program to investigate the durability of CFRP strengthened steel circular hollow section (CHS) members with and without embedded glass fibre reinforced polymer (GFRP) at ambient (24 OC ± 4 OC) and 50 OC temperatures under accelerated corrosion environment. The beams were tested to failure under four-point bending. It was found that the accelerated corrosion adversely affected the durability of the strengthened beams at both temperatures and the embedded GFRP enhanced the durability. Durability design factor has also been recommended. The proposed theoretical approach predicts ultimate loads reasonably compared to experimental value of ultimate loads.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and 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.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
