The use of Mechanically Fastened Fiber Reinforced Polymer (MF-FRP) laminates is emerging as a viable alternative to adhesively bonded FRP laminates for the rehabilitation of reinforced concrete (RC) members such as beams and slabs. A recently published state-of-the-art review of the experimental research has demonstrated the viability and effectiveness of MF-FRP systems. This paper provides a state-of-the-art review of the analytical and numerical studies performed over the last decade with the aim of: (a) predicting the strength, the load-deformation response and the failure mode of rehabilitated RC members, and (b) accounting for the interfacial behavior between the concrete and the MF-FRP laminate. Ultimate strength models and constitutive models are critically reviewed based on their key assumptions and formulations and compares the analytical predictions with previously reported experimental results.

Abstract

The use of Mechanically Fastened Fiber Reinforced Polymer (MF-FRP) laminates is emerging as a viable alternative to adhesively bonded FRP laminates for the rehabilitation of reinforced concrete (RC) members such as beams and slabs. A recently published state-of-the-art review of the experimental research has demonstrated the viability and effectiveness of MF-FRP systems. This paper provides a state-of-the-art review of the analytical and numerical studies performed over the last decade with the aim of: (a) predicting the strength, the load-deformation response and the failure mode of rehabilitated RC members, and (b) accounting for the interfacial behavior between the concrete and the MF-FRP laminate. Ultimate strength models and constitutive models are critically reviewed based on their key assumptions and formulations and compares the analytical predictions with previously reported experimental results.
