This paper presents a simple model to predict the load-deflection curve of a fiber-reinforced plastic (FRP) reinforced masonry beam subjected to bending and axial loads. Delamination growth is modeled by using an energy balance approach. It is shown that continuously growing delamination results in highly nonlinear behavior.
