In the last years, the interest in eco-sustainable composites has consistently increased. Such innovative materials are actually a promising sustainable solution for structural strengthening since they can be an alternative to petroleum‐based materials, which are frequently used for masonry retrofitting. This work describes an experimental campaign dedicated to investigating the behavior of Fabric-Reinforced Cementitious Matrix (FRCM) with natural fibers (NFRCM) made with eco-sustainable materials. Experimental tests are performed on unreinforced masonry panels (URM) and reinforced ones (RM), for characterizing their mechanical behavior.

Abstract

In the last years, the interest in eco-sustainable composites has consistently increased. Such innovative materials are actually a promising sustainable solution for structural strengthening since they can be an alternative to petroleum‐based materials, which are frequently used for masonry retrofitting. This work describes an experimental campaign dedicated to investigating the behavior of Fabric-Reinforced Cementitious Matrix (FRCM) with natural fibers (NFRCM) made with eco-sustainable materials. Experimental tests are performed on unreinforced masonry panels (URM) and reinforced ones (RM), for characterizing their mechanical behavior. URM samples are compared with RM ones accounting for their response under shear actions.
