The paper examines the results of experimental bond tests on tuff elements externally strengthened with Fibre Reinforced Grout (FRG) composites aimed to study their bond behaviour. The FRG composite investigated in this study is comprised of a glass fibre net and a non-cementitious matrix applied on both single tuff blocks and prisms made of three tuff blocks connected by mortar joints. Bond tests were performed according to the push-pull test setup. Experimental results showed that the use of inorganic matrix instead of epoxy polymers for strengthening masonry structures is suitable.

Abstract

The paper examines the results of experimental bond tests on tuff elements externally strengthened with Fibre Reinforced Grout (FRG) composites aimed to study their bond behaviour. The FRG composite investigated in this study is comprised of a glass fibre net and a non-cementitious matrix applied on both single tuff blocks and prisms made of three tuff blocks connected by mortar joints. Bond tests were performed according to the push-pull test setup. Experimental results showed that the use of inorganic matrix instead of epoxy polymers for strengthening masonry structures is suitable.
