Abstract [en]

The increasing use of Fiber Reinforced Polymers (FRP) to repair, strengthen or upgrade reinforced concrete (RC) structural elements means that there is a need to develop analytical methods for analyzing the behavior of strengthened members under fatigue loading. This paper describes an analytical model for simulating the fatigue behavior of RC beams strengthened with Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer (CFRP). Fatigue calculations are performed using a lamellar model that considers the fatigue behavior of the RC and CFRP strengthening materials during loading. The model’s output is compared to experimental data for four CFRP-strengthened beams, showing that the new model accurately predicted the deflection and strain of each one. In addition, various models for predicting the fatigue life of CFRP-strengthened RC beams were tested and a model capable of providing conservative fatigue life estimates was identified.
