Abstract(s)The current work is concerning the development of braided reinforced composite rods for civil engineering applications, namely for concrete internal reinforcement. The research study aims to understand the mechanical behaviour of braided reinforced composite rods produced from an innovative technique. Seven types of braided reinforced composite rods were produced, varying the type of fibres used as a core reinforcement of a polyester braided fabric. E-glass, carbon, HT polyethylene fibres were used in different combinations. The mechanical properties of the braided reinforced composite rods were evaluated under tensile in order to identify the type(s) of fibre(s) to be used as core reinforcement. Results are compared to those of conventional materials used for concrete reinforcement, such as steel.
