Abstract: Many studies have been undertaken on shear strengthening of reinforced concrete (RC) beams by externally bonding fibre-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites. These studies have established clearly that such strengthened beams fail in shear mainly in one of two modes: FRP rupture; and FRP debonding, and have led to preliminary design proposals. This paper is concerned with the development of a simple, accurate and rational design proposal for the shear capacity of FRP-strengthened beams which fail by FRP debonding. Existing strength proposals are reviewed and their deficiencies highlighted. A new strength model is then developed. The model is validated against experimental data collected from the existing literature. Finally, a new design proposal is presented.
