dc.description.abstractStrengthening of concrete structures using fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) systems has become a widely accepted technology in the construction industry over the past decade. Externally bonded FRP sheets are proven to be a feasible alternative to traditional methods for strengthening and stiffening deficient reinforced or prestressed concrete members. However, the delamination of FRP sheets from the concrete surface poses major concerns, as it usually leads to a brittle member failure. This paper reports on the development of FRP anchors to overcome delamination problems encountered in surface bonded FRP sheets. An experimental investigation was conducted on the performance of carbon FRP anchors that were embedded in normal- and high-strength concrete test specimens. A total of 81 anchors were tested under monotonic uniaxial loading. Test parameters included the length, diameter, and angle of inclination of the anchors and the compressive strength of the concrete. The experimental results indicate that FRP anchors can be designed to achieve high pullout capacities and hence can be used effectively to prevent or delay the delamination of externally bonded FRP sheets. The results also indicate that the diameter, length, and the angle of inclination of the anchors have a significant influence on the pullout capacity of FRP anchors. © 2009 ASCE.-
