    Abstract

    An experimental methodology is presented for the simutaneous determination of the section flexural modulus and the section shear modulus of thin-walled fiber reinforced polyester and vinylester pultruded beams. A pilot test program, involving four different fiber reinforced plastic (FRP) beams, is described and results are discussed. A slenderness ratio is introduced to characterize the shape of the thin-walled beam, and recommended values of this ratio are suggested for design purposes. With available values of the section moduli the designer has the option of using the Timoshenko beam theory instead of the Euler-Bernoulli beam theory.
