Abstract

The maintenance, rehabilitation, and upgrading of structural members are perhaps one of the most crucial problems in civil engineering applications. Moreover, a large number of structures constructed in the past using the older design codes in different parts of the world are structurally unsafe according to the new design codes. Since replacement of such deficient elements of structures incurs a huge amount of public money and time, strengthening has become the acceptable way of improving their load carrying capacity and extending their service lives. In the present study, an experimental investigation is carried out on the flexural and shear behavior of RC beams strengthened using continuous GFRP sheets are carried out. Externally reinforced concrete beams with epoxy-bonded GFRP sheets were tested to failure using a symmetrical two-point concentrated static loading system. Two sets of beams were cast for this experimental test program. In SET I three beams weak in flexure were cast, out of which one is controlled beam and other two beams were strengthened using continuous GFRP sheets in flexure. In SET II three beams weak in shear were cast, out of which one is the controlled beam and other two beams were strengthened using continuous GFRP sheets in shear. The strengthening of the beams is done with the varying configuration of GFRP sheets.
