Paper Title:
Compressive Strengthening of Damaged Historic Masonry Walls Repaired with GFRP
  Abstract

The purpose of this research is to determine the mechanical properties of damaged historic masonry walls retrofitted with Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer (GFRP) under axial load through experimental method. Five masonry wall specimens were tested under axial load acted at the top surface. One wall specimen was served as reference without retrofitting. Two walls were retrofitted with GFRP before damage. Other two walls were repaired using epoxy injection and GFRP sheets after predefined damage. The results show that the bearing capacity of historic masonry walls was completely restored and even exceeded the original capacity.
