Abstract

Coupon test data from five pultruded GFRP profiles is used to generate longitudinal/transverse, tensile/compressive ultimate stresses, elastic moduli, minor/major Poisson's ratios and ultimate strains (some of which are not in the pultruders' design manuals). Characteristic ultimate stresses/elastic moduli are compared to design manual minimum values. The former depend on profile size/shape, whereas the latter are shape-/size-independent. Limit state design stresses are shown to be larger than permissible stress design stresses. However, most of the limit state longitudinal design elastic moduli are smaller and all of the transverse design elastic moduli are larger than the permissible stress values.
