Abstract: Near-surface mounted (NSM) fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) reinforcement is one of the latest and most promising strengthening techniques for reinforced concrete (RC) structures. Research on this topic started only a few years ago but has by now attracted worldwide attention. Issues raised by the use of NSM FRP reinforcement include the optimization of construction details, models for the bond behaviour between NSM FRP and concrete, reliable design methods for flexural and shear strengthening, and the maximization of the advantages of this technique. This paper provides a critical review of existing research in this area, identifies gaps of knowledge, and outlines directions for further research.
