Summary:
This study presents the experimental and theoretical studies on debond of carbon fiber laminates bonded to concrete, which aids in understanding the mechanics of the repaired damaged prestressed concrete girders with externally bonded carbon plates. The bond strength of carbon plate specimens bonded to concrete is determined experimentally by the debond test. The initial crack is introduced in the specimens at one location, namely the plate/adhesive interface. The fracture toughness for debonding is evaluated and expressed as the critical strain energy release rate. A finite element analysis was performed to evaluate the compliance and stress distribution in the debond test specimens.
