Experiment on Fiber Reinforced Plastic (FRP) rods as shear reinforcement with the intersection of a shear crack in a beam is carried out in order to clarify the failure criterion of the FRP rod at the bent portion. The finite element analysis in which anisotropy of the FRP rod and bond slip between concrete and the FRP rod are considered, is also conducted. Strain and bond stress distributions of the FRP rod with bent portions are investigated in detail.
