This paper summarizes an experimental program undertaken at the University of Manitoba to examine the performance of CFRP stirrups for concrete structures. A total of 16 specimens with different types of CFRP stirrups, along with four control specimens using steel stirrups, were tested to study the behavior and the mode of failure. Both ends of the stirrup were cast into concrete blocks that were subsequently jacked apart to simulate the loading conditions of concrete beams. A total of three… CONTINUE READING
