Analyzing bond characteristics between composites and quasi-brittle substrates in the repair of bridges and other concrete structures

C. Carloni,    University of Hartford, USA

Abstract:

During the last two decades, externally bonded fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites have been widely used for strengthening, repairing, and rehabilitating reinforced concrete (RC) structural members. The bond characteristics contribute to the effectiveness of the stress transfer achieved between the FRP composite and the concrete substrate. Debonding of the FRP composite reinforcement is the most critical concern in this type of application. Under monotonic and fatigue-loading conditions, FRP–concrete shear debonding has been idealized as a Mode-II fracture ...
