This meticulously curated dataset encompasses 1,627 single lap shear tests performed on externally reinforced concrete members using FRP strips or ties, spanning studies from 1994 to 2022. These studies have been diligently sourced from the Scopus and Web of Science databases to provide a cohesive and extensive overview of the developments in the field of concrete reinforcement.

While material testing insights are included, they predominantly pertain to the more recent large-scale tests executed by Simpson Strong-Tie Inc. These inclusions, albeit not the central focus, do add nuanced layers to the comprehensive academic research presented.

Additionally, the dataset features Paper No. 418 in FRPRCS (Fiber-Reinforced Polymer Reinforcement for Concrete Structures) and the accepted full paper is published in an ACI SP (American Concrete Institute Special Publication), supplementing the overall compilation with enriched academic viewpoints and findings.

The objective of this assembled dataset is to serve as a substantial, integrated resource for academics, researchers, and industry professionals. It provides a balanced, encompassing view of the theoretical foundations and practical applications of FRP reinforcements in concrete members, enabling users to explore and understand the progressive methodologies and varied applications in the domain over the designated period.
