This research was conducted to investigate the ductility behavior of timber beams strengthened with CFRP (carbon fiber reinforced polymer) plates. The surface to be bonded was spiked by punching small holes of 2 mm in diameter with 10 mm spacing. The aim is to increase bonding capacity by having small studs. Five beams with the dimension of 100 mm × 200 mm × 3,000 mm were tested where one of the beams was used as control beam (unstrengthened). The remaining beams were strengthened withdoi:10.17265/1934-7359/2013.05.003 fatcat:bjedr4op45fm3j7ux76jk3izdq
