The technique of strengthening steel structures with carbon fibre reinforced polymer (CFRP) has attracted growing attention in research field as well as in practice. A newly developed CFRP laminate with a modulus of 460GPa makes it possible to increase the elastic behaviour of strengthened steel structures. A series of tension tests were carried out with double-strap joints using different types of adhesives and bond lengths. Full range bond behaviour including bond strength, effective bond length, stress distribution and derived bond-slip relations at different locations along the bond line are presented in this paper.© 2011 Tsinghua University Press, Beijing and Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg .
