The main problem encountered in steel reinforced concrete structures is the corrosion of the steel bars which eventually results in the failure and disintegration of the structure. Fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) rebar has been considered as an alternative for this since corrosion is a material problem. The purpose of this research was to investigate flexural behaviour of GFRP and steel reinforced beams. The beam sections used in this research is of size 150 x 200 mm and of 1600 mm length. Flexural strength was determined and crack pattern studies were carried out.
