Abstract Fiber reinforced polymers (FRPs) have commonly been used for the retrofitting and strengthening of bridges, especially in the strengthening flexural members. Considerable research has been conducted to investigate the static behavior of reinforced concrete (RC) beams strengthened with externally bonded FRP laminates, initially using non-prestressed FRPs and more recently using prestressed FRPs. However, the research examining the flexural fatigue behavior of beams with either non… CONTINUE READING
