Abstract

Fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) is a revolutionary breakthrough in the history of structural engineering innovation due to its unique characteristics to strengthen and repair the deficient reinforced concrete structures. This paper aimed at evaluating the flexural characteristics of jute fiber reinforced polymer (JFRP) bonded reinforced concrete beams. The influence of the test variables comprised of strengthening scheme and corrosion rate for reinforced concrete (RC) beams. The experimental study comprised of casting six RC beams and testing them in flexure loading. To determine the flexural response of RC beams, three beams were fabricated with JFRP laminate having a level of corrosion of 0%, 7.5%, and 15%, whereas three beams were designated as control beams having same corrosion levels with no JFRP. Test results indicated that all JFRP strengthened beams exhibited increased ultimate load, yield load, first cracking load, and lower ductility index compared to control beams. The results also revealed that JFRP strengthening technique improved the flexural strength of the corroded beams efficiently, albeit the ultimate load of the beams diminished with higher corrosion level. Analytical calculations were carried out for quantifying the flexural characteristics and mass loss of beams which provided a good agreement with the test results.
