AbstractThis paper presents an experimental study carried out on the structural performance of shear-critical reinforced concrete (RC) deep beams internally reinforced with two different stirrups configurations; i.e. aligned and unaligned with the fabric-reinforced cementitious matrix (FRCM) strips. The test matrix involved two unstrengthened (reference) beams and twelve strengthened deep beams tested under three-point bending. Three test variables were investigated: (a) the configuration of the internal transverse reinforcement (ITR), (b) the type of FRCM fabric (carbon, glass, and polyparaphenylene benzobisoxazole, PBO), and (c) the strengthening technique (externally bonded, EB, and near-surface embedded, NSE). Experimental results demonstrated an effective application of the FRCM in improving the load capacities (P max ) of deep beams; however, its performance depends on the test variables. The NSE-FRCM provided an inherent anchorage that prevented the premature debonding of the FRCM composite, which was a standard failure mode in the externally bonded FRCM strengthened beams. Finally, a simple strut and tie model (STM) is used to predict the load capacities of the deep beams strengthened with different FRCM systems and resulted in a satisfactory prediction with an average P th /P ex ratio of 1.11 and a standard deviation of 5.7%. - 2019 Elsevier Ltd
