Crack development and deformation behaviour of CFRP-reinforced mortars

This paper reports on a research study investigating CFRPreinforced mortars in uniaxial tension, as a strengthening material for concrete structures. The bare strengthening material was tested on dogbone specimens. Crack formation, crack development and the interaction between the grid and the mortar phase with varying geometrical parameters and mortar compositions have been investigated and evaluated. The use of engineered cementitious composites, exhibiting multiple cracking and enhanced pseudo-ductility in uniaxial tension, was found to result in an improved overall performance.
