In this study, the shear resisting behavior of reinforced concrete (RC) beams with carbon fiber sheet (CFS) was examined experimentally. Shear strength of RC beams with CFS attached to the sides is defined as the summation of the shear force carried by concrete and the shear forces carried by stirrup and CFS in shear cracking zone. The concept for calculation of the shear forces carried by stirrup and CFS is also discussed.
