Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Textile reinforcement is standard meanwhile since there is large experience with continuous and chopped fibers. However, the prestressing of continuous fibers opens more advantages since the initial strain is anticipated and larger stiffness is obtained. The paper shows that this theoretical prediction has been validated.
