Abstract

Fibre-reinforced plastic (FRP) or steel plates can be bonded to the soffit of a beam as a means of retrofitting the beam. In such

plated beams, tensile forces develop in the bonded plate and these have to be transferred to the original beam via interfacial shear

and normal stresses. Consequently, debonding failure may occur at the plate ends due to a combination of high shear and normal

interfacial stresses. This paper starts with a review of approximate closed-form solutions for interfacial stresses, identifying their

assumptions and limitations, thereby clarifying the differences between these solutions. This review also establishes the need for a

similar but more accurate solution, and such a solution is presented next in the paper. This new solution is intended for application

to beams made of all kinds of materials bonded with a thin plate, while all existing solutions have been developed focusing on the

strengthening of reinforced concrete (RC) beams, which allowed the omission of certain terms. Finally, numerical comparisons

between the existing solutions and the present new solution enable a clear appreciation of the effects of various parameters.

The determination of interfacial stresses has thus been

researched for the last decade for beams bonded with

either steel or FRP plates. In particular, several relatively

simple approximate closed-form solutions for interfacial

stresses have been developed [2–4,9,14,16] based on a

simple assumption for the adhesive layer as discussed

example problems are considered. The first is an RC

beam bonded with a glass-fibre-reinforced plastic

(GFRP), CFRP or steel soffit plate. The second is a hol-

low aluminium (AL) beam with a bonded CFRP soffit

plate. In both examples, the beams are simply supported

and subjected to a central point load or a uniformly dis-

tributed load. A summary of the geometric and material

properties is given in Table 2. The span of the RC beam

is 3000 mm, the distance from the support to the end of

the plate is 300 mm, the mid-point load is 150 kN and

the UDL is 50 kN/m. The span of the aluminium beam

is 500 mm, the distance from the support to the plate

end is 50 mm, the mid-point load is 1 kN and the UDL

is 2 kN/m. The geometric properties of the aluminium

is due to the continuity conditions enforced under a point

load. The solutions of Vilnay [2], Taljsten [14] and

Malek et al. [16] employ various simplifications such as

rounding cosh and tanh terms in their derivation. As a

result of such simplifications, the interfacial shear stress

does not tend to zero at the point load even though zero

interfacial shear stress beneath a point load is a boundary

condition in these solutions.

The normal stress results from the solutions of Roberts

[3] and Malek et al. [16] are very similar to each other

but differ from those from the solutions of Vilnay [2]

Vilnay’s solution [2], is 1.37 times the lowest value

which is from Malek et al.’s solution [16]. The corre-

and Malek et al. [16] give lower peak values but higher

results away from the plate end compared with the

present accurate solution (Fig. 6). This is due to the fact

that in these two solutions, the axial deformations in the

beam and the bending deformations in the plate are only

partially considered through the use of the transformed

section properties. These two solutions give very simi-

on the assumption that the interfacial stresses do not vary
