Abstract:
Abstract Concrete is week in tension and cracks under tensile stress. As concrete is having low tensile strength, ductility and resistance to cracking is limited to improve these properties and an attempt has made to study the effect of addition of glass fibers in ordinary Portland cement concrete. As steel is prove to corrosion. Glass fiber reinforced polymers (GFRP) reinforcement bars was used. This paper presents an experimental study as flexural behaviour of GFRC beam reinforced with GFRP rebar. A total of six beams measuring 150 mm wide x 250 mm deep x 1800 mm long were casted on M35 grade of concrete and tested up to failure under two-point loading. Glass fibers 1.5 % was used and companion specimens was tested for its mechanical properties compressive strength, flexural strength and splitting tensile strength. Conclusions were made based on load carrying, initial crack load, stiffness, ductility, energy dissipation capacity and service ability limits. Keywords:GFRP rebars, GFRC, Stiffness, Ductility, Flexure
