FRP Beam Strengthening (GeoTree)
FRP Beam Strengthening-GeoTree is sectional analysis software. It is designed and tested for rectangular, tee and inverted L reinforced concrete beams strengthened with Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) sheets, plates and NSM FRP bars or tape.
FRP Beam Strengthening-GeoTree is specialized in flexural and shear analysis with up to four layers of reinforcing steel(one compression layer and up to three tension layers). The software inputs are divided into material and geometrical properties, where every category covers the different properties for concrete, steel and FRP.
This premium version provides a design tool for FRP area that takes into account the strength and serviceability requirement for the section in flexure and in shear, the design tool generates a detailed graphs and tables to understand the behavior of the cross section strengthened with different FRP ratios in flexure and in shear. This tool gives a quick approach to design a cross section without the troublesome of iteration.
This version is equipped with a flexural design tool to meet all the strength and serviceability requirements, where the required number of flexural FRP plies is calculated. GeoTree FRP library bars are included for FRP sheets and bars.
