How reliable are the available models for predicting the FRP contribution for the shear resistance of RC beams?
2008 (English)In: Proceedings of CCC 2008 - Challenges for Civil Construction / [ed] Torres Marques, FEUP edições (Faculdade de Engenharia da Universidade do Porto Edicoes), 2008Conference paper (Refereed)
The most well-known models for prediction of the contribution of externally bonded FRP for shear strengthening of reinforced concrete beams are compared on this paper. The comparison is based on experimental results from approximately 200 strengthened concrete beams with various strengthening configurations and geometric dimensions. The results are not promising and a large scatter between the considered models was obtained. In addition, none of these models predict the ultimate shear capacity very accurately, which is of serious concern considering that some of the models are used in various design codes.
