Abstract

The applications of fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) bars in buildings can provide a potential market for their use. Since buildings may be exposed to elevated temperatures, the behaviour of carbon FRP (CFRP) reinforced concrete (RC) beams was studied at high temperatures and compared with normal temperature behaviour. Steel RC beams were used as control specimens. The failure modes of beams at normal and elevated temperatures were found to be the same. The stiffness of cracked FRP RC was less than steel reinforced concrete at normal temperature whereas FRP reinforced beams were stiffer than steel RC beams at elevated temperatures.
