Mechanical Behavior and Failure Mechanisms

One difference between fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) and fabric-reinforced cementitious matrix (FRCM) systems is the mechanical behavior in tension of the composite. FRP systems are linear elastic until failure, and their ultimate tensile strain is limited by the ultimate strain of the fibers. More
