The opportunities provided by the use of Fiber Reinforced Polymers (FRPs) composites for the shear strengthening of tuff masonry structures were assessed on full-scale panels subjected to in-plane shear-compression tests at the ENEL HYDRO S.p.A laboratory, ITALY. Tuff masonry specimens have been arranged in order to simulate both mechanical and textural properties typical of buildings located in South-Central Italian historical centres. In this paper, the outcomes of the experimental tests are presented. The monotonic shear-compression tests were performed under displacement control and experimental data have provided information about in-plane behaviour of as-built and FRP strengthened tuff masonry walls. Failure modes, shear strength, displacement capacity and post-peak performance are discussed.

Abstract

The opportunities provided by the use of Fiber Reinforced Polymers (FRPs) composites for the shear strengthening of tuff masonry structures were assessed on full-scale panels subjected to in-plane shear-compression tests at the ENEL HYDRO S.p.A laboratory, ITALY. Tuff masonry specimens have been arranged in order to simulate both mechanical and textural properties typical of buildings located in South-Central Italian historical centres. In this paper, the outcomes of the experimental tests are presented. The monotonic shear-compression tests were performed under displacement control and experimental data have provided information about in-plane behaviour of as-built and FRP strengthened tuff masonry walls. Failure modes, shear strength, displacement capacity and post-peak performance are discussed.
