Abstract:
An international Round Robin Testing (RRT) programme on FRP reinforcement was conducted within the framework of the Marie Curie Research Training Network, EN-CORE, and with the support of Task Group 9.3 of the International Federation for Structural Concrete (fib). Ten laboratories and six manufacturers and suppliers participated in this exercise. As part of this extensive experimental endeavour, one or more of the following tests were performed by the participating laboratories: 1) tensile tests on FRP bars and strips; 2) tensile tests on FRP laminate; 3) double bond shear tests of FRP laminates (Externally Bonded Reinforcement, EBR) and FRP bars/strip (Near Surface Mounted reinforcement, NSM). This paper will discusses the results of the RRT initiative, among which the experimental results of bond tests on concrete specimens strengthened with EBR and NSM FRP. The aim of these tests was to investigate the feasibility of the adopted test methods and to investigate the mechanism of bond between FRP reinforcement and concrete. To this purpose double bond shear tests have been carried out by the participating laboratories. The influence of various variables on the bond behaviour of EBR and NSM reinforcement, including the effect of different test setups is analyzed in depth, the tests are described, and the results are presented and discussed in details.
