Assessment of the existing models to evaluate the shear strength contribution of externally bonded FRP reinforcements

By Eva Oller Ibars, RENATA KOTYNIA, Antonio Ricardo Marí Bernat and Monika KASZUBSKA


This paper presents a comparative analysis of the performance of some the existing formulations to evaluate the FRP contribution to the total shear strength of reinforced concrete beams strengthened in shear by externally bonded FRP sheets. This analysis has been performe through the use of a wide database of 275 experimental tests of rectangular RC beams distinguishing those cases with and without internal steel transverse reinforcement and the different FRP strengthening configurations
