Abstract [en]

Basalt reinforced composites are recently developed materials. These mineral amorphousfibres are a valid alternative to carbon fibres for their lower cost, and to glass fibres for their strength.In order to use basalt reinforced composites for structural applications, it is necessary to perform amechanical characterization. With this aim in the present work experimental results of several staticand fatigue tests are described. Two polymeric matrices are taken into account, vinylester and epoxy,to assess their influence on the evaluated parameters. In parallel to these mechanical tests, also thethermal answer of the specimens to mechanical loads is evaluated by means of thermography. Thisexperimental technique allows defining the composite local heating during the application ofmechanical loads and its behaviour in details. Final discussion on obtained results is proposedfocussing the attention on basalt fibre composite behaviour, and comparing mechanical properties ofBFRP with other composite materials in glass and carbon fibres.
