Abstract:
The increasing interest in the field of conservation of existing masonry structures resulted in the development of new retrofitting technologies in the recent past. One of the most promising is the use of Fabric Reinforced Cementitious Mortar (FRCM), which consists of an open‐grid within an inorganic matrix. The effectiveness of the FRCM‐application is well-demonstrated in literature by means of experimental investigation regarding different structural members, among the others, columns and shear wall. In addition, FRCMs are commonly recognized as a durable strengthening solution since the grid is generally non‐metallic (high‐resistance corrosion) and, at the same time, the matrix is chemically compatible with masonry substrates.
