Textile Reinforced Mortars (TRMs) have found extensive attention for externally bonded reinforcement of masonry and historical structures. However, only few information is available regarding their mechanical properties and effectiveness in improving the seismic performance of strengthened structures. This paper presents an extensive numerical investigation on the effect of TRM composites on the nonlinear response and failure modes of masonry walls. The effect of boundary conditions and the TRM type on the performance of strengthened walls are critically discussed and presented. It is shown that the performance and failure mode of the walls can significantly change after strengthening, an important issue that should be considered at the design stage. Finally, the effect of TRM application on the nonlinear response of a large historical masonry façade in Macau is investigated and presented.
