Paper Title:
Evaluation of Allowable FRP Tensile Strain in Main Codes for Mitigation of Debonding Failure in FRP-Strengthened RC Beams
  Abstract

Intermediate crack-induced debonding is one of the most dominant failure modes in FRP-strengthened RC beams. Different code models and provisions have been proposed to mitigate intermediate crack-induced debonding failure. Out of all the existing code provisions and models, six typical ones are investigated in the current study. These available guidance for mitigating debonding failure of externally bonded fiber reinforced polymer composites applied to concrete is evaluated based on data obtained from experimental programs. It is shown that the current recommendations are inadequate to effectively mitigate intermediate crack-induced debonding in flexural members.
