Experimental Investigation on Debonding Between Masonry and Frp
The increasing use of carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) sheets for strengthening existing reinforced concrete beams has generated considerable research interest in understanding the debonding mechanism of failure in such systems. Less attention has been paid on the application of the FRP technology to masonry structures and specifically in the case of restoration of historical monuments and buildings. Since this technique is, in many cases, not invasive, easy to apply and free from corrosion, its application has been extended to preserve historical buildings.
