Experimental Investigation on Shear Behavior Of GFRP-Concrete Hybrid Beams

Abstract:

Article Preview

The present study describes an experimental investigation on shear behavior of GFRP-concrete hybrid beams, consisting of reinforced concrete beams combined with U-shaped glass fiber reinforced polymer pultruded profile constructed as combined tensile reinforcement, permanent formwork and corrosion resistance. A total of six beams were tested, three served as control beams and the remaining were implemented with U-shaped GFRP composites. Test results show that hybrid beam provides significant increase in shear capacity when compared to control RC beam.
