    Abstract

    Basalt Fiber Reinforced Polymer (BFRP) composites have advantages over Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer (CFRP) composites in some aspects such as lower cost and green source of material. This paper reports a series of fatigue tests of BFRP-concrete bond behaviour. The bending test set-up was adopted for ease of test. The test programme included 11 specimens tested under static, fatigue and post-fatigue loading. The fatigue failure modes, the development of deflection, the evolution of BFRP strains and the propagation of interfacial cracks were analysed. The results show that the fatigue has a significant effect on the BFRP strength especially near the root of concrete transverse crack, and on the bond performance of the adhesive near the interface crack tip.
