Evaluation of fiber types
- Variation in response is consistent with theory
- Can use fewer Dyneema fibers for similar maximum tensile strains
- Hybrid lengths of fibers may be an option to optimize performance and use fewer fibers
- Tensile damage appears to change compressive behavior moderately
Numerical modeling (preliminary)
- Panel connection sizes appear to dictate flexibility of infilled system.
- Continued investigation of influence of panel and connection details is necessary
