This study shows how reducing the thickness of the tube enclosing continuous fiber flexible reinforcement (CFFR) and providing mechanical anchorage at the end of CFFR improve the shear capacity of a beam specimen. It is also clarified in this study that from tensile tests on U shaped specimen of CFFR the shear capacity in a concrete beam reinforced with CFFR is greatly influenced by the deformational characteristics of CFFR, i.e., a slippage at bent portion of fibers and deformation of tube covering the fibers.
