Continuous basalt fiber is more efficient and eco-friendly than most glass & carbon fibers.
Chemical, mechanical and geometrical properties of basalt fiber are investigated and compared to the industry standard glass fibre.
Basalt is a solid, compact igneous rock which is formed when volcanic lava cools adequately to solidify, covering many parts of the Globe.
This study presented the structural behavior of wood beams externally strengthened with various FRP composites.
The conference program included reports on basalt fiber and basalt-based composites
Over the last 5 years, extensive research on mechanical properties and durability of basalt fibre-reinforced concrete have been conducted.
An overview of basalt fiber reinforced composites including mechanical properties under static and dynamic loading, tribological and thermal properties.
Focus in this work was to investigate a commercially available basalt fiber under thermal and mechanical load.
