Abstract: This research paper gives the behaviour of reinforced concrete continuous beams under static loading by externally bonding with GFRP sheets. A standard two span continuous beams of size (300×300×2500)mm were casted. Reference beam with no external bonding is prepared to compare the values. Identical reinforcement arrangement is done for all beams. RC beams are tested for failure, load capacity and deflection analysis. Test results are compared for reference and GFRP bonded beams.
Keywords: Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer (GFRP), RC continuous beams, deflection analysis, failure characteristics.
