    The mechanical behavior of the adhesive interface between the fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) strip and the concrete substrate often controls the response of FRP-strengthened reinforced concrete (RC) members. Plenty of studies devoted to understanding the mechanical behavior of FRP strips glued...

    The beam - column joint is resisting the forces against both horizontal and vertical directions, which is particularly vulnerable failure during earthquake. For achieving a strong beam-column joint, the incorporation of fibres like steel and uses of high performance concrete material is must...
