Abstract

In this methodological study, the ultimate response of masonry pillars strengthened by externally bonded Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer (CFRP) was investigated. Historical bricks were derived from a XVII century rural building, whilst a high strength mortar was utilized for the joints. The conventional experimental information, concerning the overall reaction force and relative displacements provided by ???point??? sensors (LVDTs and clip gauge), were herein enriched with no-contact, full-field kinematic measurements provided by 2D Digital Image Correlation (2D DIC). Experimental information were critically compared with prediction provided by an advanced three-dimensional models, based on nonlinear finite elements under the simplifying assumption of perfect adhesion between the reinforcement and the support.
