Abstract

The present contribution statistically assesses a design procedure to estimate the bond resistance of composite fabrics externally glued on clay brick masonry substrates. Based on recent experimental campaigns a database of bond test results between fiber reinforced polymer and clay bricks is collected and an alternative formula is proposed starting from theoretical and experimental evidence. Then, its characteristic value is evaluated following the "Design Assisted by Testing Approach" suggested in the Eurocode 0. The capabilities of the proposed method are statistically evaluated and the advantages with respect to existing formulas are discussed.
