Abstract: This work addresses the flexural analysis of reinforced concrete beams with externally bonded FRP reinforcement.
A numerical method has been developed for the computation of the bending moment capacity of FRP-plated reinforced concrete beams and prediction of the flexural failure modes.
The expressions for the upper and lower values of the characteristic plate reinforcement ratios are derived for rectangular and T-sections using the Eurocode 2 model for concrete.
A flow-chart of the numerical procedure, suitable for computer implementation, is included and its accuracy is validated with available experimental results.
Some of the novel features of the numerical analysis are demonstrated through a brief investigation of the effects of loads acting at the stage of strengthening on the ultimate flexural capacity and deformation behaviour of FRP-plated R.
