    Abstract In this paper, a notched three-point bending test is used to study the fracture performance of the short basalt fiber bundle reinforced concrete (SBFBRC). To compare and analyze the enhancement effect of different diameters and different content of basalt fiber bundles on the fracture performance of concrete, some groups are set up, and the P-CMOD curves of each group of specimens are measured, and the fracture toughness and fracture energy of each control group are calculated. The fracture toughness and fracture energy are two important fracture performance parameters to study the effect and law of the new basalt fiber bundles… More >

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2022.015266
    Abstract In the previous couple of decades, techniques to reap energy and empower low voltage electronic devices have received outstanding attention. Most of the methods based on the piezoelectric effect to harvest the energy from ambient vibrations have been revolutionized. There’s an absence of experiment-based investigation which incorporates the microstructure analysis and crystal morphology of those energy harvest home materials. Moreover, the impact of variable mechanical and thermal load conditions has seldom been studied within the previous literature to utilize the effectiveness of those materials in several practical applications like structural health monitoring (SHM), etc. In the proposed research work, scanning… More >
