Deflection and Crack-Width Prediction of Partially Boned CFRP Concrete Beams
Concrete beams reinforced with fiber reinforced polymer(FRP)bars exhibit large deflections and crack widths as compared to concrete beams reinforced with steel due to the low modulus of elasticity of FRP. Consequently,in many cases,serviceability requirements may govern the design of such members. This paper describes six partial bonded concrete beams prestressed with CFRP tendons are tested under monotonic loads. deformation and crack width of this kind of beams with varying unbonded length are systematically investigated. The predictions of the 《Code for Design of Concrete Structures》（GB50010－2002）equations are compared with the experimental results obtained by testing six partial bonded concrete beams prestressed with CFRP tendons. Good agreement was shown between the theoretical and the experimental results.
