Numerical Simulation of Moisture Diffusion in Pultruded GFRP Composite Profile

Abstract

Long-term exposure of fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) profile to harsh in-service environment will lead to irreversible degradation of mechanical properties. Understanding the exposure “aging” effects on pultruded FRP composites is important for their application in bridge structures. The moisture diffusion process plays a very important role to understand material degradation of GFRP laminations exposed to hydrothermal environment. In this paper, the moisture diffusion process with focusing on pultruded GFRP composites used in bridge applications is numerically simulated. The parameters of moisture diffusion are calibrated by gravimetric tests of thin plates.
