Abstract
Abstract Deterioration of adhesively bonded CFRP/steel systems in salt fog environment, i.e., deicing salts and ocean environments, has to be taken into account in the design of steel strengthened structures. In the present work, monotonic and quasi-static cyclic loading were applied to CFRP-to-steel double strap joints for two kinds of CFRP laminates after being aged for a period of 5000 h to evaluate the bond behavior. The bonded joints exposed to salt fog had a different failure mode than that observed in the control specimens (0 h of exposure). The severe reduction of the maximum bond stress resulted from damage initiation that occurred in the corrosion region of the steel substrate, associated with final partial rupture on the corroded steel substrate around the edge of the bonded area: it was also correlated with reduced load carrying capacity. Results of pseudo-cyclic tests showed that the relationship between a local damage parameter (D) and normalized local dissipated energy (W d /G f ) and the normalized slip increment (ΔS/ΔS ult ) exhibited almost the same trend in the un-aged and aged bonded joints. The normalized slip increment can be seen as a direct indicator for the local and global damage for the un-aged and aged bonded joints. However, monotonic and quasi-static cyclic tests results revealed that the stress concentration due to local corrosion of steel substrate could lead to brittle rupture or accelerated cumulative damage once the aged bonded interface had become weaker. The bonded joints have exhibited also a smaller relative deformation capacity between CFRP and steel.

Abstract This paper summarizes the strengthening of a historically significant 122-year-old roadway metallic bridge using nonprestressed bonded carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) plates. Prior to the bridge strengthening, sets of laboratory tests were conducted to characterize the mechanical properties, glass transition temperature, and CFRP-to-steel bond strength of two different epoxy adhesives (linear and nonlinear) commonly used for structural retrofitting. Furthermore, the field applica...

Abstract External bonding with carbon fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP) has been considered great potential in fatigue strengthening of defected steel components. Generally, it takes one to two weeks for a structural adhesive to achieve full strength in such a repair scheme. The potential risk of an environmental attack at the curing stage of adhesive has not been well understood. This paper presents an experimental study on the interfacial behavior of CFRP-steel double-lap joints subjected to sal...

Abstract Pseudo-cyclic and cyclic loading were applied to CFRP-to-steel bonded joints built with two different CFRP laminates. In this paper, the strength capacity and bond-slip curves are presented and compared. The modes of failure are also described and associated with the types of material used, and the observed performances are correlated. The analysis of the results showed a threshold value for loading and amplitude level, below which the cyclic loading caused no detectable damage. For cyc...

Abstract Concrete structures Externally Bonded Reinforced (EBR) with Fibre Reinforced Polymers (FRP) have been studied and used since the end of the last century. However, several issues need to be better studied in order to improve performance. The influence of size of anchorage plates used on Reinforced Concrete (RC) structures strengthened with EBR FRP composites, the external compressive stress to be applied on the anchorage plate and the numerical simulation of this region are some of the t...

Abstract The effective stress transfer between the fiber reinforced polymers (FRP) and the steel substrate is crucial for the successful retrofit of existing steel structures with FRP composites. However, there are no standard tests for FRP-to-steel interfaces, wherefore different test configurations have been used in recent years to assess the bond behaviour in these interfaces. The present study shows that the choice of test configuration is highly important and leads to different transfer str...

Abstract This paper examines the development of the bond-slip models for carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) plates externally bonded to steel substrates where debonding failure occurs in the adhesive layer. Thirteen single-shear bonded joints were tested to investigate the effects of the adhesive properties and the adhesive thickness on the bond-slip behavior of the interfaces. The test results showed that the bond-slip relationship for the bonded joints with the Sikadur-30 adhesive was appr...

Abstract In reinforced concrete structures strengthened using externally bonded fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) laminates, the performance of the bonded interface is vital to the performance of the strengthened structure. Extensive research has been carried out to study the behaviour of FRP-to-concrete bonded interfaces under quasi-static monotonic loading. However, only limited work has been done on understanding the behaviour of such bonded joints under quasi-static cyclic loading, which is a k...

Abstract Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer (CFRP) composites have a large potential for strengthening and retrofitting steel parts but due to their premature debonding from steel, further data and research are still required for wider application in such situations. In the present paper, the bond characteristics of CFRP-to-steel joints in pull-pull loaded conditions were studied. Monotonic loading of the double strap joints with different bond lengths was applied and the failure modes and interfac...

Abstract Carbon fibre reinforced polymers have shown an ability to provide increased strength and rehabilitation properties to steel. However, under extreme environmental conditions adhered CFRP/steel joints undergo detrimental reductions in strength and durability. This paper explores the use of silane chemical barriers and adhesive modifications to improve bond durability and retard environmental damage and restrict bond degradation. Carbon nano tube immersion in adhesives created increases in...

Abstract The long-term durability of steel structures strengthened by externally bonded carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP) plates or sheets is a concern due to the discrepancy in the thermal expansion coefficients (CTE) between CFRP plate and steel. In the present study, the single-lap shear test was applied to study the variation of the bonding performances between CFRP plates and steel using different types of adhesive after 150, 300, and 500 temperature cycles from −20 °C to 40 °C. The re...

Abstract The bond-slip model of a carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP)-steel bonded interface is crucial for predicting the bond behavior of CFRP-strengthened steel structures. CFRP delamination failure is often encountered in existing studies on the bond behavior between CFRP plates and steel plates. However, this failure mode has been investigated by few scholars, especially regarding the interfacial bond-slip model based on CFRP delamination failure. In this paper, a total of 16 single-shea...

Abstract The bonding between CFRP (Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer) laminate and steel plays a key role in the strengthening effects of CFRPs on a steel structure. In this paper, the toughness of the adhesives and the bonding thickness were investigated on the CFRP-steel bond performance using a single lap shear test. The properties of the adhesives, brittle (linear elastic) or tough (nonlinear elastic, lower modulus, higher elongation), led to apparent differences in the ultimate load, stiffnes...
