A research on the behavior of masonry structural elements strengthened by strips of FRP is being carried on by University of Padua. It comprises the study of the behavior of masonry vaults and of shear walls, both made of clay bricks and cement-lime mortar. Vaults are strengthened at the intrados or at the extrados, whereas the wallets are strengthened by a grid of FRP on one or both faces. In order to compare possible various performances different kind of fibers have been considered. Experimental laboratory tests have been performed and analytical and numerical approaches have been considered to model the behavior of such structural elements. In this report some of the most significant results are discussed.

Abstract

A research on the behavior of masonry structural elements strengthened by strips of FRP is being carried on by University of Padua. It comprises the study of the behavior of masonry vaults and of shear walls, both made of clay bricks and cement-lime mortar. Vaults are strengthened at the intrados or at the extrados, whereas the wallets are strengthened by a grid of FRP on one or both faces. In order to compare possible various performances different kind of fibers have been considered. Experimental laboratory tests have been performed and analytical and numerical approaches have been considered to model the behavior of such structural elements. In this report some of the most significant results are discussed.
