The use of fiber reinforced polymer in the repair and strengthening of reinforced concrete members is currently being discussed worldwide. Fiber reinforced polymer application (FRP) is a very effective way to repair and strengthen structures that have become weak due to life span and design defects. FRP repair systems provide an economically viable alternative to traditional material and repair system. Experimental investigations on the flexural behavior of RC beams strengthened using continuous fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) sheets were carried out. Externally reinforced concrete beam epoxy-bonded GFRP (Glass fiber reinforced polymer) sheets are tested to failure using symmetrical two point concentrated static loading system. Three sets of beams were casted for this experimental test program and tests were carried out by varying the number of fiber layers.
