    Abstract

    As strength degradation of GFRP occurs due to the SCC in its constituents, present paper proposes the prediction method of the residual strength considering the microscopic damage accumulation. The predicted result showed a good agreement with the experimental data while considering not only the degradation in its fiber reinforcement but also the degradation in its fiber/matrix interface.
