Abstract

Experimental investigations on the flexural behavior of RC beams strengthened using woven glass fibre reinforced polymer (GFRP) sheets are carried out. The dimensions of the beam specimens are 120 mm x 240 mm x 2400 mm. Externally reinforced concrete beams with bonded GFRP sheets were tested to failure using a symmetrical two point concentrated static loading system. Total of six beams were casted for this experimental test program. Three beams were used as controlled beam and other three beams were strengthened using woven glass fibre reinforced polymer (GFRP) sheets in one layer, two layer and three layer. Experimental data on load, deflection and ultimate load of each of the beams were obtained. The load vs deflection curves were compared between control specimens and GFRP wrapped specimens.
