One of the most important design approaches in the repairing/strengthening details is using CFRP (Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer) to delay the debonding of the CFRP strips/plates from the surface to take full advantage of the CFRP reinforcement. Compared to non-anchored strips, research studies regarding bond-slip models developed for fan type CFRP anchors and anchored CFRP strips to strengthen details are limited in the related literature review. However, in studies on this subject, anchors are placed at 90 degrees to the axial tensile force applied to the CFRP strips. The ultimate load-bearing capacity and bond-slip models of CFRP strips with the different angled CFRP fan type anchor under axial tensile force have not been found in the literature review. Within the study's scope, 28 angled CFRP strip test specimens were produced and then tested under the effect of monotonically increasing axial tensile force with an experimental setup designed by the authors. The variables examined in this study were the concrete compressive power, the CFRP strip's width, the number of the CFRP anchor fan type, and the angle of the anchor placed on the CFRP strip. As a result of the study, an equation was proposed for calculating the ultimate load-bearing capacity of angled anchored CFRP strips and angled anchored CFRP strips. Finally, a new proposal for the bond-slip model was developed. It is thought that the new interface bond-slip model developed for CFRP strips with different angles will make an important contribution to the literature. It can be used in finite element analysis to realistically analyze the capacities and load-displacement behavior of reinforced concrete structural elements by strengthening such strips.
