Abstract: The objective of this study is to substitute carbon or glass fibber reinforced polymer composite by glass mineral matrix composites in order to improve the shear behaviour of short beams. The conclusion consists in evaluating the degree of correlation between the experimental results and the guideline formulations, with the objective to eventually transpose them directly to the case of mineral matrix composites, and if necessary, the existing rules are amended by appropriate modifications. The result of this first experiment study on the efficiency of cement composite used for external shear strengthening of RC beam clearly enhance can be as reliable as usual FRP (Fibre Reinforced Plastic). The ultimate load compare to the reference specimen has shown it. On other hand the existing model are not able to predict correctly the ultimate shear load mainly because material mechanical law is different and because failure load may be modified in comparison with usual FRP material.
