Abstract

this paper analyses the numerical and experimental results to evaluate the dynamic properties of pultruded GFRP (Glass-Fiber Reinforced Polymers) buckled columns. The profiles are made of glass fiber reinforcement and thermosetting vinylester matrix with thin-walled open or closed cross section. The buckling phenomena of the column with fixed ends were evaluated with a non-destructive method based on experimental modal data through dynamic identification procedure.Numerical analysis has been carried out through Finite Element models calibrated considering two consecutive stages that involve the local and global scale: i) parametric natural frequencies analysis to model the different cross sections taking into account the stiffness of the rotational constraint between the wall segments of the thin walled pultruded profiles; ii) buckling analysis to identify the inaccuracies in the specimen or in the experimental apparatus through global flexural displacements which increase continuously with the axial load.Experimental, theoretical and numerical results were compared in order to know the wall segment effects of GFRP columns in free vibration field when affected by buckling phenomena.The results allow to investigate the significant role that the manufacturing imperfections of pultruded material play in the structural performance of GFRP buckled columns.
