Based on a series of experimental tests on notched concrete beams externally bonded with unidirectional fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) sheets, this paper investigates the bond characteristics of FRP sheet-concrete interfaces under dowel load, which acts vertically on the FRP sheet and leads to a mix-mode interface peeling. The peeling properties of FRP sheet-concrete interfaces under the dowel load are evaluated in terms of their interface dowel load-carrying capacity, critical interface… CONTINUE READING
