Flexural Design Methodology for Concrete Beams Reinforced with Fiber-Reinforced Polymers

The use of fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) as structural reinforcement for concrete beams requires a flexural design methodology that provides adequate safety from brittle failure. Recognizing the absence of inelastic material behavior, it is proposed that safety for FRP-reinforced flexural members s...
