Externally bonding fiber-reinforced cementitious matrix (FRCM) composite to the surface of concrete or masonry members is an effective technique to improve the performance of existing structures. In many cases, interfacial debonding between the FRCM fiber textile and embedding matrix governs the capacity of FRCM-strengthened structures. The interfacial debonding process can be studied analytically by assuming a cohesive material law (CML), which represents the relationship between interfacial shear stress and slip. In this study, a two-stage function with an exponential stage and a constant stage is proposed to describe the CML associated with the matrix-fiber interface. The latter stage is characterized by a constant shear stress to account for the friction/interlocking between the matrix and fiber observed in experimental tests.

The parameters of the two-stage CMLs for PBO, glass, and carbon FRCM were inversely determined by matching the analytical relationships of peak applied axial stresses associated with different bonded lengths with the experimental ones.

Abstract

Externally bonding fiber-reinforced cementitious matrix (FRCM) composite to the surface of concrete or masonry members is an effective technique to improve the performance of existing structures. In many cases, interfacial debonding between the FRCM fiber textile and embedding matrix governs the capacity of FRCM-strengthened structures. The interfacial debonding process can be studied analytically by assuming a cohesive material law (CML), which represents the relationship between interfacial shear stress and slip. In this study, a two-stage function with an exponential stage and a constant stage is proposed to describe the CML associated with the matrix-fiber interface. The latter stage is characterized by a constant shear stress to account for the friction/interlocking between the matrix and fiber observed in experimental tests. With the assumed CML, the full-range loading response was obtained. Additionally, the interfacial slip, fiber axial strain, and interfacial shear stress were analytically derived. The parameters of the two-stage CMLs for PBO, glass, and carbon FRCM were inversely determined by matching the analytical relationships of peak applied axial stresses associated with different bonded lengths with the experimental ones. Considering the inversely determined CMLs, the predicted load responses and strain profiles showed good agreement with the measurements of direct shear test specimens.
