Abstract: In this work an experimental programme was carried out to investigate the out-ofplane response of medium-scale masonry walls strengthened with textile-reinforced mortar (TRM). The investigated parameters involved both the material of the fibre textile reinforcement and the amount of reinforcement utilized. Results presented, indicate significant improvement in the structural performance in terms of the out-of-plane strength, whereas key concepts of the TRM mechanical response are highlighted and discussed. A finite element simulation procedure is also suggested for the case of TRM strengthened masonry walls. Results obtained from simulation agree well with experimental results.
