Abstract

Fiber Reinforced Mortars (FRM) represents a promising technique for the in-plane and out-of-plane reinforcement of existing masonry buildings, coupling effectiveness with compatibility needs. The paper focuses on a technique consisting in the application on the masonry surface of a 30 mm thick mortar coating with Glass Fiber-Reinforced Polymers (GFRP) meshes embedded, presenting and discussing the results of several characterization tests (pull-out, lap-splice, bond and tensile tests) performed so to investigate on the tensile properties and bond performances of the strengthening system, useful for correct design procedures and suitable also for numerical modeling.
