An accurate bond-slip model is of fundamental importance to analyze the response of fiber-reinforced cementitious matrix (FRCM) composite-strengthened structures. This study proposes a method to determine the bond-slip model of FRCM-concrete joints based on longitudinal fiber strains. First, discrete strain profiles measured with strain gauges were fitted by a continuous function ε(y), where y is the coordinate along the bonded length. Then the slip s(y) and shear stress τ (y) along the composite bonded length were obtained by integration and derivation of ε(y), respectively. The debonding load and peak load from single-lap direct shear specimens were predicted by the fitted function ε(y) and showed good agreement with test results. From the plot of the τ(s) relationship obtained from ε(y), an alternative, closed- form, continuous bond-slip relationship was obtained based on the maximum shear stress τm and the corresponding slip sm. The fracture energy was compared for both relationships and was in reasonable agreement with values reported in previous studies.

Abstract

An accurate bond-slip model is of fundamental importance to analyze the response of fiber-reinforced cementitious matrix (FRCM) composite-strengthened structures. This study proposes a method to determine the bond-slip model of FRCM-concrete joints based on longitudinal fiber strains. First, discrete strain profiles measured with strain gauges were fitted by a continuous function ε(y), where y is the coordinate along the bonded length. Then the slip s(y) and shear stress τ (y) along the composite bonded length were obtained by integration and derivation of ε(y), respectively. The debonding load and peak load from single-lap direct shear specimens were predicted by the fitted function ε(y) and showed good agreement with test results. From the plot of the τ(s) relationship obtained from ε(y), an alternative, closed- form, continuous bond-slip relationship was obtained based on the maximum shear stress τm and the corresponding slip sm. The fracture energy was compared for both relationships and was in reasonable agreement with values reported in previous studies.
