Abstract
Near surface mounted (NSM) is a technique that improves the strengthening capacity of composite laminates. The use of a post-tensioning technique modifies the performance of the strengthening because it is active bearing loads from the very beginning. This study compares the performances of three beams: one without strengthening, one with passive NSM laminate, and a third with post-tensioned NSM laminate. The experimental approach compares the pre-cracking and post-cracking performance until fai...
