Flexural Behaviour Of Gfrp Wrapped Rcc Beams



Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) is a relatively new class of composite material manufactured from fibers and resins and has proven efficient and economical for the development and repair of new and deteriorating structures in civil engineering. FRP composite materials possess superior mechanical properties. It includes impact resistance, strength, stiffness, flexibility and ability to carry loads. To meet up the requirements of advanced infrastructure, new innovative materials/ technologies in construction industry has started to make its way. Any technology or material has its limitations. To meet the new requirements, new technologies have to be invented and put to use. With structures becoming old and the increasing bar corrosion, old buildings have started to demand additional retrofits to increase their durability and life. Use of FRP for confinement has proved to be effective retrofitting and strengthening application. In this paper concrete specimens are wrapped with glass fibre reinforced polymers (bi-directional) to study the effect of confinement in the strength of specimens.
