Abstract

This paper presents a nonlinear local bond-slip model for fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) laminates externally bonded to concrete at elevated temperature for future use in the theoretical modeling of fire resistance of FRP-strengthened concrete structures. The model is an extension of an existing two-parameter bond-slip model for FRP-to-concrete interfaces at ambient temperature. The two key parameters employed in the proposed bond-slip model, the interfacial fracture energy, Gf, and the interfacial brittleness index, B, were determined using existing shear test data of FRP-to-concrete bonded joints at elevated temperature. In the interpretation of test data, the influences of temperature-induced thermal stress and temperature-induced bond degradation are properly accounted for. As may be expected, the interfacial fracture energy, Gf, is found to be almost constant initially and then starts to decrease when the temperature approaches the glass transition temperature of the bonding adhesive; the interfacial brittleness index, B, exhibits a similar trend. The proposed temperature-dependent bond-slip model is shown to closely represent the test data upon which it is based, despite the large scatter of the test data.
