Effect of Textile Fabrics on Flexural Strength of RCC Beam

Dharmesh Bhagat, Hiten Patel, Apurv Kapadia


The textile fabrics are a very beneficial technique in repair and strengthening of reinforced concrete beam. This method is used in a number of applications to improve the flexural strength of structural beams. However, the fabrics used are a bit costly. The aim of this investigation is to observe the change in flexural strength on an Under-Reinforced designed beam by applying woven polypropylene fabric and non-woven polyester fabric that is glued to the Under-reinforced RC Concrete beams with an epoxy bonding agent. Each beam is applied with single, double or triple layers of fabric in U-shape under virgin condition and tested until failure.
