In the current report are analyzed the experimental results of initial tensile tests of Basalt FRP (BFRP) rebars provided by VSL.
The investigation was conducted on the 19th of February 2013, in the laboratory of CER LITEM.
Objectives of the study: to determine the tensile strengths of 6 mm and 8 mm basalt FRP rebars, and to determine what type of test setup and anchorage system is best suited for future tensile tests of BFRP bars.
