Description

Raw data for Bulk Glass Reinforced Composite Columns Physical Testing Results, Analysis, and Discussion research paper. These are composite columns constructed of polyurethane resin (which naturally bonds to glass, eliminating the need for sizing agents) and bulk glass. The available data is raw data of the load - deflection curves for the sample glass reinforced composite columns. Testing was exclusively compressive as this is the intended design use of these columns. Additionally, finite element models are provided, which were utilized to determine the stresses within the columns at the point of delamination and failure. The finite element models are presented such that the bonding condition can be modified to determine the failure buckling strength condition of both bonded and unbonded columns.

Steps to reproduce

Compressive load deflection graphs are provided and do not need to be reproduced. Ansys 2020 R1 or a later version is required to access the finite element models. By modulating the connection condition between elements between bonded and unbonded, the Euler Bernoulli buckling load can be determined.
