Abstract – The present work focuses on the experimental investigations of FRP wrapped masonry load bearing members. The experimental program consists of testing on FRP strengthened masonry columns. The enhancement in load carrying capacity of masonry columns due to confinement by FRP strips has been found. An ‘Advanced Composite Fiber Wrap System’ with combination of vertical and horizontal FRP strips has been proposed. Behaviour of unstrengthen and FRP strengthened masonry columns subjected to uniaxial compression has been studied. The contribution of FRP anchors in enhancement of load carrying capacity has been quantified. Finite element analysis for unstrengthen masonry elements has been done using the ANSYS software. The experimental and analytical results are compared. CNR-DT-200 provides guidelines for the strengthening of masonry structures using FRP.
