The paper analyzes the structural behavior of concrete beams reinforced with hybrid fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP)-steel reinforcements. The analysis refers to concrete beams reinforced with FRP rebars placed near the outer surface of the tensile zone, with low cover thickness values, and steel rebars placed at the inner level of the tensile zone, with high cover thickness values, able to protect the steel from the corrosion. Such reinforcement allows one to optimize the structural behavior of beams and guarantees a good level of ductility and rigidity. Results of an experimental and theoretical investigation are presented and discussed. Significant features of the structural behavior regarding deflection, curvature, ductility, crack width, and spacing are pointed out. Ultimate and serviceability conditions are examined, highlighting the influence of mechanical and geometrical parameters affecting the behavior of hybrid reinforced-concrete beams.

Abstract

The paper analyzes the structural behavior of concrete beams reinforced with hybrid fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP)-steel reinforcements. The analysis refers to concrete beams reinforced with FRP rebars placed near the outer surface of the tensile zone, with low cover thickness values, and steel rebars placed at the inner level of the tensile zone, with high cover thickness values, able to protect the steel from the corrosion. Such reinforcement allows one to optimize the structural behavior of beams and guarantees a good level of ductility and rigidity. Results of an experimental and theoretical investigation are presented and discussed. Significant features of the structural behavior regarding deflection, curvature, ductility, crack width, and spacing are pointed out. Ultimate and serviceability conditions are examined, highlighting the influence of mechanical and geometrical parameters affecting the behavior of hybrid reinforced-concrete beams.
