Subject - analysis of applicability and effectiveness of cascade type models in design of strengthening of stretch elements by gluing on their surface fiber reinforced polymers (FRP). Research objectives – cascade method of stretched elements reinforcement with adhesive joints presentation. Materials and methods – few variants of FRP-reinforcement with application of FEM simulation and analytic approach. A number of diagrams and tables represent the results. Results - a highly efficient and cost-effective method of strengthening the stretched elements to increase their bearing capacity reserves, the features of the bonded joint behavior, the equations and formulae for analysis and design. Conclusions - the name “cascade” reflects the features of the proposed strengthening design. The base element relaxation is gradual with each successive element attached. Analytical expressions in a rather general form are obtained and presented to design the cascade strengthening scheme. Design examples concentrate on the analysis of the adhesive joints application to attach FRP elements. The results suggest the effective use of adhesive joints to strengthen rather strong, including steel, stretched elements. The cascade method eliminates the indispensable use of highly expensive high-strength materials, thereby reducing the cost of reinforcement structures.
