Abstract [en]

This paper presents the results of an experimental campaign carried out to investigate the behavior of reinforcedconcrete (RC) beams strengthened in shear using externally bonded advanced composite materials. In order tocompare their performance, two different types of composite materials were used to strengthen the beams: fiberreinforced polymer (FRP) and fiber reinforced cementitious matrix (FRCM) composites. The beams were thentested in four-point bending scheme, and measurements regarding applied load and mid-span displacements wereacquired. Observations regarding the gain in shear strength, influence on mid-span deflection and ductility, andcomparison of the performance of the two strengthening systems are provided. For specimens strengthened withFRCM composite, the contribution to the shear strength provided by the FRCM strengthening system is comparedwith the value predicted by an analytical model found in the available literature.
