In the current report are analyzed the experimental results of several tensile tests of Basalt FRP (BFRP) rebars provided by VSL, anchored with steel wedges.
The investigation was conducted in the laboratory of CER LITEM
Objectives of the study: to determine the failure modes and ultimate tensile stresses of 6 mm and 8 mm Basalt FRP rebars anchored with two different steel wedge systems; and to compare the anchoring efficiency of the wedge systems.
