Estimation of the Modulus Fir Wood Reinforced With PBO Fiber Mesh

Open access


This paper presents the results of preliminary tests for estimating the modulus of elasticity of wooden beams from firs reinforced with PBO fiber mesh. The tests were carried out in the Materials Strength Laboratory at the Kielce University of Technology in Kielce, Poland with PN-EN 408: 2004. The wooden elements were subjected to a four-point bending test with the aim of estimating the elastic modulus when bending, assuming the loading velocities of the loading forces of 5 mm / min. The obtained results show a significant increase in the load-bearing capacity of beams reinforced with PBO mesh.
