The behavior of fiber reinforced plastic (FRP) concrete elements under service conditions is analyzed.

Abstract

The behavior of fiber reinforced plastic (FRP) concrete elements under service conditions is analyzed. Taking into account the real constitutive law of materials and local bond-slip law which adequately describes the interaction between the FRP reinforcement and concrete, a numerical procedure is proposed for obtaining moment-curvature relationships for a cracked beam element. Using the moment-curvature laws, the load-deflection analysis of FRP concrete beams is carried out. To study the influence of geometric and mechanical parameters, a numerical investigation was carried out and the results obtained were compared with those from other methods and Codes. The results of the experimental investigation are described and compared with those of the proposed procedure; the comparison shows good agreement between the theoretical and experimental results.
