Abstract: The major contribution of this thesis is towards the shear capacity and shear failure mechanism of reinforced concrete beams with adhesively bonded transverse near surface mounted fiber reinforced plastic plates. In shear strengthening, there are two forms of plate debonding that interact with each other consisting of intermediate crack debonding that is governed by the axial forces in the plate are induced by shear deformations. This research considers both forms of debonding and in particularl their interaction. -- From abstract.
