Abstract(s)The externally bonded reinforcement (EBR) technique is one of the most widely used strategies for the flexural strengthening of reinforced concrete (RC) with fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) materials. The EBR technique offers several structural advantages when the FRP material is prestressed. The development of high shear stresses at the ends of the prestressed FRP material can cause premature FRP peeling-off failure. This premature failure can be delayed or even avoided with the use of special end-anchorage systems, like the mechanical anchorage (MA) system and the gradient anchorage (GA) system. This paper presents an experimental and a numerical study on RC slabs strengthened in flexure with prestressed carbon FRP (CFRP) laminate strips, namely: (i) one reference slab; (ii) one slab strengthened with nonprestressed externally bonded CFRP (EB-CFRP) laminate; (iii, iv) and two slabs strengthened with prestressed EB-CFRP laminates using the MA and GA systems. The performance of these simulations was compared with results of the slabs experimentally tested up to failure. Subsequently, these models were used on a parametric study that intended to investigate the influence of different parameters affecting the behaviour of the slabs strengthened with prestressed EB-CFRP laminates.
