Historical masonry constructions often need to be strengthened and upgraded to satisfy current seismic code requirements. Recently many interventions have been done bonding composite materials to the surface of existing masonry elements.

Experimental results of double shear tests involving different bond lengths are presented. The results evidence that the debonding occurs at the fibers/matrix interface after a considerable fibers/matrix slip.

Abstract

Historical masonry constructions often need to be strengthened and upgraded to satisfy current seismic code requirements. Recently many interventions have been done bonding composite materials to the surface of existing masonry elements. The effectiveness of these interventions strongly depends on the bond between the strengthening material and the masonry and on the mechanical properties of the masonry substrate. In this paper the bond between fiber reinforced cementitious matrix (FRCM) materials made out of a Carbon net embedded in a cement based matrix and the masonry is experimentally and analytically investigated. Experimental results of double shear tests involving different bond lengths are presented. The results evidence that the debonding occurs at the fibers/matrix interface after a considerable fibers/matrix slip. They also confirms the effectiveness of the Carbon-FRCM materials as external reinforcements for masonry structures. The obtained experimental results are used to calibrate a local bond-slip relation that is essential in the modeling of the structural behavior of masonry elements strengthened with Carbon-FRCM.
