NONLINEAR ANALYSIS OF R.C. BEAMS STRENGTHENED USING PRE-STRESSED NSM CFRP RODS

Qassim M. Shakir

Abstract


A nonlinear finite element study has been conducted to investigate the effectiveness of strengthening RC beams with pre-stressed NSM CFRP rods in enhancing the flexural strength of the beams. Four beams have been considered. One acted as control to simulate an existing structural member.
