Abstract

Experimental research has shown that one of the key factors affecting the behaviour of reinforced concrete structures strengthened with externally-bonded fibre-reinforced polymer (FRP) is the bonding behaviour between concrete and FRP laminates. As a complement to experimentation, this paper proposed the use of serial/parallel mixing theory in numerical simulation, which is a tool for studying the behaviour of the concrete-FRP epoxy interface. An example is presented which analyses beam test simulation results and compares them with the experimental results.
