Abstract: Pure adhesive bond of FRP to concrete is not only weak but also unreliable in a long term. This problem can be effectively overcome by a newly developed bond enhancement system the hybrid bonded FRP system (HB-FRP) in which small mechanical fasteners are used to augment the bond. In this paper, theoretical modeling is reported for characterization of the interfacial bond of the HB-FRP system. Local bond-slip model involving adhesive and mechanical mechanisms is proposed. Based on the basic bond-slip model, loa…
