Abstract

Based on a series of experimental tests on notched concrete beams externally bonded with unidirectional fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) sheets, this paper investigates the bond characteristics of FRP sheet-concrete interfaces under dowel load, which acts vertically on the FRP sheet and leads to a mix-mode interface peeling. The peeling properties of FRP sheet-concrete interfaces under the dowel load are evaluated in terms of their interface dowel load-carrying capacity, critical interface peeling angle, and interface peeling fracture energy. Experimental parameters include strength of concrete substrate, tension stiffness of FRP sheets, properties of bonding adhesives, concrete surface treatment methods, and length of precrack set between the FRP sheet and concrete substrate. Analytical models clarifying the relationships among the interface dowel load-carrying capacity, the interface peeling angle, and the interface peeling fracture energy are built up and also verified by test results. Further, this paper shows how to use the interface peeling fracture energy calibrated from the present dowel tests for the practical design of spalling prevention, which is now becoming a popular application of FRP sheets for the maintenance and repair of existing concrete structures in Japan.
