    • Characterizing the structural behavior of FRP profiles—FRCM hybrid superficial elements: experimental and numerical studies 

      Eskenati, Amir Reza; Mahboob, Amir; Bernat Masó, Ernest; Gil Espert, Lluís (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2022-03)
      Article
      Open Access
      Composite materials have been increasingly used to produce hybrid structures together with concrete. This system is commonly applied to bridges and roof structures. The main idea of the current research was to extend this ...
    • Experimental and numerical study of adhesively and bolted connections of pultruded GFRP I-shape profiles 

      Eskenati, Amir Reza; Mahboob, Amir; Bernat Masó, Ernest; Gil Espert, Lluís (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2022-03)
      Article
      Open Access
      Recent developments indicate that the application of pultruded FRP profiles has been continuously growing in the construction industry. Generating more complex structures composed of pultruded FRP profiles requires joining ...
    • Experimental and numerical study of shear interface response of hybrid thin CFRP–concrete slabs 

      Mahboob, Amir; Gil Espert, Lluís; Bernat Masó, Ernest; Eskenati, Amir Reza (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2021-09-09)
      Article
      Open Access
      Hybrid slabs made of carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP) and concrete provide a solution that takes advantage of the strength properties of both materials. The performance of the system strongly depends on the CFRP–concrete ...
    • Flexible fiber fabric for FRP–concrete connection of thin hybrid slabs 

      Mahboob, Amir; Gil Espert, Lluís; Bernat Masó, Ernest; Eskenati, Amir Reza (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2021-08-26)
      Article
      Open Access
      In order to combat corrosion issues, several studies on progressively replacing steel reinforcement elements with composite ones have been conducted in recent years. Hybrid steel– concrete thin slabs in which the steel ...
    • Study of hybrid FRP-FRCM superficial structural elements 

      Eskenati, Amir Reza (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2023-06-09)
      Doctoral thesis
      Open Access
      (English) The most common composite materials for strengthening building structures are divided into two dif ferent types based on the matrix’s composition, organics (polymers) or inorganics (cement, lime). The hybrid ...
