Abstract The possible premature failure due to debonding between the adhesive layer and concrete is one of the key issues in FRP-strengthened RC beams; debonding can occur at the beam end (end debonding) or in the cracked zone (intermediate debonding). In the present paper, a mechanical model considering non-linear stress–strain relationships for concrete, steel and FRP-to-concrete interface is presented, with the aim of simulating the behavior of RC beams strengthened by externally bonded FRP… CONTINUE READING
