Basalt-fibre-reinforced polymers (BFRPs) are promising economical materials developed in recent years for strengthening or repairing reinforced concrete (RC) structures. The effectiveness of strengthening RC beams with near-surface-mounted (NSM) BFRP reinforcement was investigated in this study. One reference beam and six beams strengthened with NSM BFRP reinforcements were tested under four-point loading. The main test variables were the NSM reinforcement ratio, the tensile reinforcement ratio… CONTINUE READING
