Design Guidelines for Strengthening of RC Structures Using FRP Materials - State of Art Review


S.K.Divya , Valliammai Engineering College; K.Kiruthika, Velammal Engineering College




Strengthening of RC structures using FRP(Fibre Reinforced Polymer) is been practiced all over the world .There are various guidelines available for FRP in different countries stating the method of its use. This project is to develop the guidelines for strengthening of RC structures using FRP materials with reference to the other country codes and it is an empirical approach like SP16, showing various plots for moment ratio and reinforcement ratio. This is done by making a comparative study of various guidelines of various countries across the globe. Journals are collected from ASCE, ACI, ICI, RILEM, SCIENCE DIRECT etc., we work upon the flexural strength, shear strength of beams. Comparative study on, bending moment, reinforcement ratio, young’s modulus of FRP and steel etc., for different loading span for various beams are to be made. From this data collection and valuations, the developed guidelines in an empirical way like SP16 for FRP will be achieved with graphs and their relations.
