Failure Characterization of Structural FRP Bars
A combined experimental and theoretical investigation on the structural behavior of fiber reinforced plastic (FRP) bars is presented. Test results indicate that the ultimate strength decreases...

Separation of Organics from the Aqueous Phase Using Polymeric Resins
The adsorption of tetrachloroethene (PCE) onto several polymeric materials is reported and compared to activated carbon F-400. In addition, the bisolute adsorption of chloroform and trichloroethene...

Dynamics of Protective Coatings to Limit Cavitation Damage
Cavitation implosions inflict a very high impact stress on turbine blades and turbine liners. One strategy for limiting the impact on the turbine components is to overlay a protective...

Fatigue Design and Reliability Analysis of CFRP Composites
The statistical fatigue properties of unidirectional (UD) T800/3631 carbon/epoxy composite laminates are investigated in this paper. Fatigue tests were conducted under rotating bending....

Reliability Synthesis of CFRP Laminated Plate
The paper presents a formulation of shift synthesis to improve the reliability of fiber reinforced plastic (FRP) laminated plates with uncertain elastic constants and lamina strength....

Removal of Synthetic Organics and THM Precursors by Polymer-Assisted Oxidation

Access Tube Characteristics and Neutron Meter Calibration
Neutron meter calibration was found to be influenced by material type, thickness and size of access tube. Meter counts were decreased by an average of 15% for a 20% increase in tube diameter...

Structural FRP Composites
Fiber-reinforced plastics are only just being discovered by civil engineers. Long used in expensive military and aerospace applications, they are beginning to find their way into structures....

Fiber Reinforced Plastic Grids for the Structural Reinforcement of Concrete
The use of fibre resin plastic grid is investigated as a primary bending reinforcement in concrete members. Laboratory bending data is compared with theoretical results using ACI 318-83...

Spectral Techniques for Serviceability and Durability Assessment of High-Performance Construction Materials
Using spectral techniques, one can obtain the frequency content of a material specimen. Spectral measurements were made on specimens of Portland cement and a polymer based materials. In...

U.S. Coast Guard Experience with Commercial FRP Vessels with Respect to Structural Reliability
The U.S. Coast Guard currently inspects over 1000 fiber reinforced plastic (FRP) vessels used in commercial passenger service. The designs include monohulls, catamarans, hydrofoils and...

Design of Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic Underground Storage Tanks
The purpose of this paper is to discuss the design and construction techniques of fiberglass composite underground storage tanks. The scope of this paper is limited to the straight shell...

Innovative Uses of Polymer Concrete
Polymer concrete (PC) was developed in the 1950s. The material became more widely known in the 1970s when it was used for the repair of portland cement concrete. Polymer concrete is significantly...

Properties of a New Polymer Concrete
A new polymer concrete was developed by adding unsaturated polyester resin and emulsifier into concrete. The new polymer concrete exhibits high strength of up to 69 MPa (10,000 psi) for...

Aggregates, Fibers and Coupling Agent in Polyester PC
This study investigated the influence of fine aggregate, glass fiber and silane coupling agent on the mechanical and mode I fracture behavior of a polyester polymer concrete (PC). The...
