The ultimate bearing capacity test is carried on CFST arch bridge model with CFRP slings, and the deflection of tie-beams, CFST arch, crossbeams, decks is also tested. Studies have shown that before the sliping of 4# CFRP sling, the deflection growth of east and west tie-beam, east and west arch both has good symmetry. The deflection growth of crossbeams and decks also has good symmetry, but after the sliping of 4# CFRP sling(located at the middle of west tie-beam), the structural internal forces redistribution appeared. The deflection of west tie-beam increased suddenly, and the mid-span deflection of west tie-beam is larger than that of east tie-beam by 14.6%. The mid-span deflection of east arch is larger than that of west arch by 9.9%. The deflection of crossbeam at 3L/8 and L/4 sections are respectively larger than those of crossbeam at 5L/8 and 3L/4 sections by 13.8% and 5.3%, The deflection of 3#, 2# and 1# decks are respectively larger than those of 4#, 5# and 6# decks by 7.8%, 13.2% and 17.1%. After the snapping of 10# CFRP sling(located at 3L/8 section of east tie-beam), the structural internal forces would appear redistribution. The deflection of east tie-beam would increase suddenly. The mid-span deflection of east tie-beam is larger than that of west tie-beam by 31.7%, and the mid-span deflection of east arch is larger than that of west arch by 21.3%. The deflection of crossbeam at 3L/8 and L/4 sections are respectively larger than those of 5L/8 and 3L/4 sections by 24.7% and 22.5%. The deflection of 3#, 2# and 1# decks are respectively larger than those of 4#, 5# and 6# decks by 16.2%, 24.5% and 28.6%.
