Flexural Behavior of Concrete One-Way Slab Externally Prestressed with GFRP Tendons
To study flexural performance of one-way slabs externally prestressed with GFRP tendons, a series of experiments were carried out. Based on the results, the load-deflection responses and bending capacities were presented in this paper. Moreover, the influence factors, including the quantity of GFRP tendons and prestressing force, were discussed. Comparison tests proved that the slabs externally prestressed with GFRP tendons will be improved in some aspects, such as ultimate deflection, flexural stiffness, bending capacity, larger deformation before failure.
