|Abstract: ||With the purpose of study three distinct techniques to strengthen beams failing in
bending under monotonic loading, an experimental program was carried out. Three techniques
are analyzed: Externally Bonded Reinforcement (EBR), Near-Surface Mounted (NSM) and
Mechanically Fastened and Externally Bonded Reinforcement (MF-EBR). Unidirectional CFRP
laminates were used for the case of the EBR and NSM techniques, whereas multi-directional
CFRP laminates were used with the MF-EBR system. In this work the tests are described in
detail, and the obtained results are presented and discussed. Numerical simulations of the tests
are presented to evaluate the ability of current FEM tools in the simulation of these
