Analysis and experimental usage of CFRP wrap type on flexural strength of concrete beam
Department of Civil Engineering, Universitas Sumatera Utara, 20155 Medan, Indonesia
Today, reinforced concrete structures are commonly used in buildings because the price cheaper than steel structures. However, many concrete structures are damaged. There are several ways to overcome this problem, and one of them is by strengthening the structure using Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP). This study discussed the flexural strength of reinforced concrete beams using Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP). In this case, the researchers used Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer (CFRP) Wrap Type as the external reinforcement. The beam’s dimension was 15 x 25 cm with a length of 320 cm. Based on the analysis results, the beam using CFRP Wrap type can increase the load 3.12 % times. Furthermore, the experimental results show that the beam with the CFRP type Wrap increases the load by 2.5 times. In conclusion, beams strengthened with CFRP Wrap type can inhibit initial cracks and hold the tensile and flexural strength greater than un-strengthened beams.
