Experimental program were carried out to investigate the behavior of self-compacting reinforced concrete deep beams retrofitting with carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP). Six simply supported deep beams were tested under symmetrically two point loads, three beams were tested up to failure without strengthening as a control beams with different shear span to effective depth ratio (a/d) while the other two beams were loaded up to 60% from the ultimate load of control beams for each a/d ratio and then retrofitted by the same configuration of CFRP to study the effect of a/d ratio on the properties of deep beams retrofitted. a/d for tested beams were (0.8, 1, 1.2). Study was focused on determining failure loads, cracking loads, failure modes, load midspan deflection. All the beams had the same compressive strength, overall dimensions and flexural and shear reinforcement. It was concluded that using this retrofitted method is very efficient and a gain in the ultimate load capacity of the deep beams was obtained also the results showed that when a/d ratio increase from 0.8 to 1.2, the ultimate load was decrease by 25% and midspan deflection was increased approximately at all load stages for control and retrofitted beams.
