Abstract
Fabric-reinforced cementitious matrix (FCRMs) are promising composite materials for the retrofitting and reinforcement of existing structures. In this study, vegetal meshes consisting of hemp and cotton coated with epoxy were manufactured and combined with a cementitious matrix to strengthen masonry walls. A synthetic glass fibre mesh was also tested. Several walls were manufactured, strengthened, and tested under cyclic loading. The results allow us to compare the performances of different mesh...
