Paper Title:
Finite Element Analysis of Bending Resistance for RC Beams Strengthened with AFRP Sheets
  Abstract

In order to reveal the failure properties of AFRP sheet-reinforced beams under 4-point bending, a 3-D finite element model of RC beam, including rebar, interface and sheet elements, was established by using MIDAS FEA finite element software. The stress and displacement of each of components in beam were solved by cycling calculations. In terms of Code for Design of Concrete Structures, the initial cracking loads of RC beams strengthened with prestressed and non-prestressed AFRP were further obtained, which are relatively conformed to the existing experiment. The results show that, compared with the beams strengthened with prestressed and non-prestressed AFRP, the initial cracking load of the former has considerable increase.
