Abstract

Nowadays Fiber Reinforced Cementitious Matrix (FRCM) systems play a relevant role in the context of innovative interventions for the seismic rehabilitation of masonry structures. Their capacity in improving the strength of masonry components is comparable with the one observed in case of Fiber Reinforce Polymer (FRP) systems, but with additional advantages (lower costs, environmental compatibility, removability, etc.). Nevertheless, although a relevant number of applications concerns curved structures (arches, vaults, domes, etc.), the majority of studies available in literature provide a contribution mainly concerning the specific case of applications on flat masonry substrates. The present paper is part of a research activity carried out by the Authors with the main goal to provide a contribution toward the study of the bond behavior of FRCM systems externally applied to curved masonry elements. In particular, the results of numerical analyses carried out by means of a simple modeling approach proposed by the Authors are here carried out by considering as case studies specimens object of a recent experimental investigation. Specific aspects influencing the local bond behavior of FRCM systems applied on curved masonry substrates are then analyzed by opportunely introducing them into the numerical model. The obtained results allow for understanding the effect of important features, experimentally observed in terms of global response, and here assessed in terms of local bond behavior, by particularly emphasizing the role of the curvature and the strengthening position.
