Behavior of R.C.C. Beam with Rectangular Opening at Shear Zone and Bending Zone Strengthened by Three Types Of GFRP Sheets

Authors(2) :-Mufassil Hijas R. P, Priyanka Dilip

In the construction of high rise buildings, the openings in beams are provided for pipes and utility ducts, electric lines. Provision of opening in beam develops cracks inside and around the opening due to stress concentration. In this paper the behavior of R.C.C. beam with rectangular opening strengthened by three different types of GFRP sheets at shear zone and bending zone were studied with single layer bonding technique.
