A meso-scale finite element model is first presented for simulating the debonding behavior of FRP-to-concrete bonded joints in simple shear tests. In this model, both the FRP plate/sheet and the concrete are modeled using elements of mesoscopic sizes so that the shapes and paths of cracks during the entire debonding process can be appropriately captured. Results obtained from this model are next presented to provide insight into the debonding failure process. Finally, based on a finite element parametric study and existing test results, three bond-slip models of different levels of sophistication are presented. These proposed models are far more accurate than all existing bond-slip models.
