The flexural behavior of Offshore concrete structures strengthened with FRP composites

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review

Abstract

The results of experimental and analytical study on the behavior of reinforced concrete beams strengthened with the fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) for flexure are discussed in this paper. A test series comprising four five meters long simply supported beams were tested under monotonic load to verify the analytical model. Particular emphasis was given to the performance of predicted model building upon discrete element analytical methodology incorporating the dual effects of flexure and shear in beams. An important conclusion in this paper is that the predicted model can be used to accurately predict the flexural behavior of load versus displacement and FRP bonded stresses.
