This paper aims at investigating the in-plane shear response of FRCM-strengthened masonry walls. To this end, available results of experimental tests are collected, accounting for the masonry substrate made with bricks and mortar joints and several FRCM materials applied with different strengthening configurations. The contribution of the composite material to the masonry wall shear capacity is evaluated. The influence of some geometrical and mechanical parameters on the shear strength of the retrofitted walls is assessed. Available analytical design formulations are implemented to the database and commented.
