Neto, P.; Alfaiate, J.; Dias-da-Costa, D.; Vinagre, J.Published 2016-01-01Considerable dispersion is usually found in experimental data concerning the material properties of FRP-concrete bond connections. In pure shear models, the direction of FRP loading is assumed to be parallel to the axis ...Open AccessArticle
Modelling the behaviour of steel fibre reinforced concrete using a discrete strong discontinuity approach Octávio, C.; Dias-da-Costa, D.; Alfaiate, J.; Júlio, E.Published 2016-01-01The use of Fibre Reinforced Concrete (FRC) is gradually wide-spreading due to the significant advantages relatively to Normal Concrete (NC). In the case of steel fibres, the quasi-brittle behaviour of plain concrete ...Open AccessArticle
