Abstract

Mix-mode fracture is a more representative failure mode of FRP sheet-concrete interfaces in real FRP retrofitting engineering. In this paper, a new test method suitable for evaluating fracture behaviors of FRP sheet-concrete interfaces under Mode I, Mode II and the Mix mode loading conditions has been developed. The shear and normal stress conditions are imposed on the FRP sheet-concrete interface by adding bending and dowel forces on FRP strengthened concrete beams respectively. Based on the experimental tests, the parameters governing the fracture of FRP sheet-concrete interface under different failure modes are obtained.
