Abstract

A variety of methods are used in the repair and strengthening of masonry structures. Some of them use traditional materials, but in cases where they are insufficient, new materials are used. Some interventions may take the form of repairs to several elements, while others strengthen the structure as a whole. In addition, it is always desirable that the bending moment in the structures are low. It is extremely important to observe this effect. Therefore, this study was conducted. In this study, as a result of the reinforcement made by wrapping 1 mm thick CFRP fabric into the 100mm thick masonry dome structure. The differences between maximum bending moment of the masonry domes and CFRP reinforced masonry domes were compared.While these differences were observed to be 37.26% in a percentage. This difference was observed when there was a positive decrease. Reinforcement with CFRP has been observed to be positive for safety on the masonry dome.
