Numerical Simulation Procedure of RC Beam Reinforcement with FRP
The use of fiber reinforced polymers (FRP) to reinforce reinforced concrete(RC) structure has become one of the main applications of composites in civil engineering. FRP composite is analyzed using the serial/parallel mixing theory, which deduces the composite behavior from the constitutive equations of its components. Numerical procedure of RC beam reinforceed with FRP is studied based on the finite element method. The numerical results accord with the test results. The validity of the proposed procedure is proved comparing numerical and experimental results.
