Description

The database includes data for the moisture concentration gradients in both normal strength (NSC) and high strength concrete (HSC) due to different curing regimes and the relevant moisture concentration gradients in a FRP rod embedded in concrete. Data for the degradation of the transverse Young's elastic modulus of FRP rods due to plasticisation phenomena from moisture absorption can also be found. The database supports analytical results in Toumpanaki, E., Lees, J.M. and Terrasi, G.P. (2020).
