Abstract
Fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) application is a very effective way to repair and strengthen structures that have become structurally weak over their life span. FRP repair systems provide an economically viable alternative to traditional repair systems and materials. In this study Experimental and Analytical Investigation on Behaviour of Reinforced concrete Continuous Tbeams in Negative Moment Region strengthened using Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer (GFRP) sheets are carried out. Reinforced concrete Tbeam externally bonded with GFRP sheets were tested to failure using a symmetrical two point static loading system. Two RC T-beams and One Rectangular beam were cast for this experimental test. One beam was used as a control beam and one beams is strengthened using Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer (GFRP) sheets. Experimental data on load, deflection and failure modes of each of the beams were obtained. The effect of different amount and configuration of GFRP on ultimate load carrying capacity and failure mode of the beams were investigated.The experimental results showed that the externally strengthened reinforced concrete beam with bonded GFRP sheet showed significant increase in ultimate load.A series of comparative studies on deflection between T-beam and Rectangular beam were made. Future areas of research are being outlined.
