Organization: ACI
Publication Date: 1 April 2010
Status: active
Page Count: 50
scope:

This guideline provides information on the selection and design of FRP systems limited to externally bonded FRP laminates and near-surface-mounted FRP bars/strips for increasing the in-plane and out-of-plane strength of existing ungrouted, grouted, or partially grouted URM walls; infill walls are not included in this guide. The guide is applicable to URM structures made of clay bricks, concrete masonry units, and natural stones using conventional types of mortar.

For masonry with significant deterioration, questionable mortar bond, and cracking and/or element displacement, traditional procedures may be required as well as FRP strengthening. The evaluation for the need to apply traditional modes of strengthening is not covered in this guide.
