Abstract: Extensive research has been carried out in recent years on the use of fibre-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites in the strengthening of reinforced concrete (RC) structures. This paper provides a concise review of existing research on the behaviour and strength of FRP-strengthened RC structures, with a strong focus on those studies which contribute directly to the development of strength models. Topics covered include flexural and shear strengthening of beams, flexural strengthening of slabs, and strengthening of columns subject to both static and seismic loads. For each of the topics covered, the methods of strengthening are first explained, followed by a description of the common failure modes. Available strength models are then summarised and discussed.
