AbstractDespite the extensive research on the debonding behavior of fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) strengthening systems, no standard methodology has been established on its experimental characterization. To assess the performance and reliability of small-scale testing on near-surface mounted (NSM) FRP strengthening systems, an experimental program was carried out on a series of nine NSM FRP strengthening systems (bars and strips), in the framework of an international round robin testing (RRT… 
Bond behavior of NSM FRP strips in concrete under sustained loading
The Near-Surface Mounted (NSM) FRP strengthening technique, in which FRP reinforcement is bonded into grooves cut in the concrete cover, has been recently introduced in many projects and has
Characterization and Simulation of the Bond Response of NSM FRP Reinforcement in Concrete
The effect of the shape of the local bond–slip law and its parameters on the global response of the NSM FRP joint in terms of load capacity, effective bond length, slip, shear stress, and strain distribution along the bonded length are studied.
FEM-based modelling of NSM-FRP bond behaviour
Bond between Fibre Reinforced Polymer (FRP) Near-Surface Mounted (NSM) reinforcement and concrete is one of the key factors affecting the behaviour of this strengthening methodology. Properties of
A Review on NSM-CFRP technique using in Shear Strengthening of RC Deep Beams
Near-Surface Mounted (NSM) using Fiber-Reinforced Polymer (FRP) bars has been become an effective technique to improve flexural and shear behavior of existing and or new Reinforced Concrete (RC)


Bond Efficiency of EBR and NSM FRP Systems for Strengthening Concrete Members
This paper reports the results of an experimental program to investigate the bonding behavior of two different types of fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) systems for strengthening RC members: externally
