Abstract: A new inexperienced constructing material is glass fibre reinforced polymer (GFRP) rebar. GFRP rebars are non-corrosive, non-conductive, light-weight substances and have an excessive longitudinal tensile capacity that is beneficial for use in civil infrastructure applications. In this analysis, the overall performance of GFRP rebar-reinforced concrete beams was assessed. Full scale exams had been conducted underneath four-point bending on eight one hundred fifty x 250 x 1500 mm beams to inspect the influence of GFRP specimens reinforced through both GFRP or metal rebars with flexural reinforcement ratios (ρf) ranging from 0.53 to 1.45 times the balanced ratio (ρfb). In phrases of crack pattern, load deflection behaviour, load strain conduct and peak capacity, the check facts used to be analysed to decide the flexure and shear conduct of GFRP RC beams. The find out about confirmed that the ultimate load capacity of beams is immediately proportional to the flexural reinforcement ratio, and for steel bolstered specimens, cracking moments had been greater, relative to GFRP. For GFRP RC beams, the peak carrying ability is extra than steel beams. GFRP beams confirmed greater deflections than bolstered beams of steel. The findings additionally confirmed that the building of GFRP bolstered beams in concrete with GFRP stirrups can be influenced by means of shear failures. The reinforcement ratio and shear design of GFRP bolstered concrete beams is affected by way of their behaviour.
