Abstract

This paper presents an investigation into the flexural behaviour of reinforced concrete beam with opening reinforced with two different materials i.e., steel and Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer (GFRP). Comparison study between the two different materials were carried out and presented in this study through non-linear Finite Element Method (FEM) using the commercial ABAQUS 6.10 software package. The performance of the opening beam reinforced with GFRP is influenced by several key parameters. Simulation analyses were carried out to determine the behavior of beam with opening subjected to monotonic loading. The main parameters considered in this study are size of opening and reinforcement diameter. The results show that GFRP give 23%- 29% more ductility than steel reinforcement. The result also shows when the size of opening change from 200mm to 150mm or from 150mm to 100mm the ultimate load capacity increase by 15%. In general, good agreement between the Finite Element (FE) simulation and the available experimental result has been obtained.
