Abstract

This study presents a parametric study of flexural strengthening ofreinforced concrete beam using external steel reinforcement. The intent of this study is to evaluate the increase in flexural strength of reinforced concrete beams using external steel reinforcement due to the parameters of the existing reinforced concrete beam and external steel reinforcement. An analytical model was proposed for the analysis of rei nforced concrete beams with external steel reinforcement. This analytical model was used in the parametric study. In this study, the beams were analysed with three different characteristic concrete strengths, values of internal steel reinforcement ratio and effective depth and amount of external steel reinforcement. A Fortran programme was written to determine the neutral axis depth of the beams based on equilibrium. The neutral axis depth is determined in order to calculate the ultimate strength and failure mode of the beam. Charts of strengthening ratio versus relative reinforcing index were constructed. The lines of balance failure limit were also presented to indicate the limit of the amount and effective depth of external steel reinforcement corresponding to the balanced failure mode of the internal steel reinforcement. The charts provide the guidelines in."the design of flexural strengthening of reinforced concrete beams using external steel reinforcement.
