Flexural Behavior of Concrete Beam Reinforced with Steel and FRP Re-Bars

Abstract:

Article Preview

FRP composite materials are widely applicable in the construction industries as a load-bearing structural element or a reinforcing and/or repairing materials for the concrete. In this paper, we presented the flexural behavior of steel reinforced concrete beams reinforced with FRP re-bars manufactured by different fibers but the same vinylester resin. Experimental investigation pertaining to the load-deflection and load-strain characteristics of steel reinforced concrete beams reinforced with FRP re-bars with garnet coated surface is presented and the theoretical prediction is also conducted. In the investigation, the effects of FRP re-bar reinforcement in addition to the steel reinforcement are estimated. The experimental results are compared with theoretical predictions. Good agreements are observed.
