The Study on the Mechanical Characteristics of FRP Strengthened RC Beam
The mechanical model of the FRP Strengthened RC beam is studied in this paper. According to the static equivalence principle, the equivalence elastic modulus of the FRP strengthened RC beam simplified model is obtained; by using modal equivalence principle, the equivalence density of the model is also obtained. The result of virtual FRP strengthened RC beam shows that the method in this paper can be used widely with high accuracy.
