no rotations are allowed at both endings
span loading 3 t/m
beam lenght 6m

the existing reinforcement is only 50% than required


RE: SHEAR FRP beam reinforcement

can you clarify what means FRP?

RE: SHEAR FRP beam reinforcement

check out Mbrace.com  they have a design guideline for FRP and CFRP wraps.

RE: SHEAR FRP beam reinforcement

FRP stand for Fiber-Reinforced Plastic reinforcement, here aiming for repair of a structural defficiency in shear.

RE: SHEAR FRP beam reinforcement

I have heard of taking sheets of FRP and epoxying them to the face of beams, walls, etc.  The tensile strength of these sheets is tremendous, and the d you get by placing them on the face really increases your bending capacity.  There is an article in one of the recent Structural Engineer magazines about using these sheets for masonry.  I'll try to dig up the article.

RE: SHEAR FRP beam reinforcement

July 2001 issue of Structural Engineer Magazine.  However, the article is on Carbon FRP's.  Sorry.
