Development of Recycled tyre-bale and Recycled tyre Crumb Sandwich Panels
MetadataShow full item record
This research largely focused on investigating the structural behaviour of recycled tyre-bale and recycled tyre crumb sandwich panels with an aim to promote the reuse of waste tyres in structural engineering applications. Experimental, numerical and theoretical methodologies are implemented to establish the best performing sandwich panels and verified their static and dynamic load capacities. The research findings encourage the use of recycled tyre-bale and crumb sandwich panels as structural and non-structural members in infrastructure projects.

Chen, Wensu; Hao, Hong (2013)Blast-resistant structures are traditionally designed with solid materials of huge weight to resist blast loads. This not only increases the construction costs, but also undermines the operational performance. To overcome ...
Structural behavior and vibration characteristics of geopolymer composite lightweight sandwich panels for prefabricated buildingsCui, Yanqiang; Hao, Hong; Li, Jun ; Chen, Wensu ; Zhang, Xihong (2022)In this study, two new types of geopolymer composite lightweight sandwich panels are developed for prefabricated buildings. The first one has Fiber-reinforced Geopolymer (FRG) composite skin layers and polyurethane (PUR) ...
Numerical study of sandwich panel with a new bi-directional Load-Self-Cancelling (LSC) core under blast loadingLi, Z.; Chen, Wensu; Hao, Hong (2018)© 2018 A new form of bi-directional Load-Self-Cancelling (LSC) sandwich panel is proposed in this paper. An array of square dome shaped steel sheet as core of the proposed sandwich panel is designed to cancel a certain ...
