The paper provides a summary of a theoretical derivation of equations for strengthening concrete beams in shear with CFRP (carbon fiber reinforced polymer) sheets and presents a limited number of laboratory tests. A fairly good agreement is obtained with a comparison between theory and testing. Still, additional tests will be necessary to verify and control the derived theory. The future tests should focus not only on the different angles of the fiber but also the number of layers and different stiffnesses of the fibers used. The aim of these tests is to find a factor for safety where the design equations can be used on the safe side without putting strong limitations on the strengthening system used.
