Several researches have been carried out on reinforced concrete beams strengthened with fiber reinforced polymer composite. Some of the works focused on shear strengthening compared with flexural strengthening that had the largest share. This paper reviews 10 articles on carbon fiber reinforced polymer strengthened reinforced concrete beams. Finally, this paper attempts to address an important practical issue that is encountered in shear strengthening of beams with carbon fibre reinforced polymer laminate. This paper also proposes a simple method of applying fibre reinforced polymer for strengthening the beam with carbon fibre reinforced polymer.
