Research on Experiments about Inverted Arch CFRP Reinforced RC Beam
In this paper, we tested the two points loading flexural performance of inverted arch CFRP reinforced RC beam with practical experiments, and contrastively analyzed the limit bearing capacity, deflection under loading, strain, cracking load, crack width and spacing between directly bonded CFRP reinforced RC beam and inverted arch CFRP reinforced RC beam. Then we explored an RC beam strengthen method with good reinforcement effect and good economy and which can be easily applied in practical constructions.
