Abstract

The functionality of walls strengthened with extemally bonded composite materials under the presence of debonding is studied. The paper numerically compares between two cases. The first one examines a concrete blocks masonry assembly strengthened with fully bonded layers of composite material. The second case examines the same structure but includes a debonded region at its center. The comparison focuses on the deformations in the layered structures and on the normal and shear stresses at the interfaces of the bond layer. Conclusions on the functionality of the patched wall close the paper.
