Importance of fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) strengthened technique is significant in the case of reinforced concrete slabs. Even though a wide variety of FRP strengthening technique is available, but premature debonding is the main failure model in ordinary bond technique, and the strengthening effect is limited. The present study concentrated on hybrid bonded FRP strengthen technique and it is a combination of externally adhered and mechanically fastened fiber reinforced polymer system. This study focused on finite element analysis by using ANSYS and compare the structural behavior of externally bonded (EB) and hybrid bonded (HB) FRP strengthening systems.
