Feature in IIFC Newsletter

PhD graduates and former CORE Group members Tiago Morgado and João Sousa were recently featured in the IIFC Newsletter (2019, No. 2) for their theses "Thermal and Structural Response of Pultruded GFRP Profiles Under Fire Exposure" and "Durability of Pultruded GFRP Profiles and Adhesively Bonded Connections Between GFRP Adherents", respectively. Tiago's thesis investigated the viability of the structural use of pultruded GFRP profiles in the construction industry, namely in buildings, by assessing the thermal and structural responses of pultruded GFRP profiles exposed to fire. His work involved a combination of experimental, numerical and analytical studies, where aspects such as the mechanical behaviour of pultruded GFRP material at elevated temperature and the thermal and mechanical response of pultruded GFRP profiles subjected to different types of fire exposure and comprising different fire…
