This paper presents the experimental results of flexural behavior of steel beam strengthened with fiber reinforced polymer plastic (FRP) strips subjected to static bending loading. Four H beams were fabricated strengthened with aramid strips and carbon strips and one control specimen were also fabricated. Among them two specimens were strengthened with partial length. The H-beams had two types of failure mode, depending on the length of the FRP strips:(1) strip debonding in beams with partial length reinforcement and (2) strip rupture in beams with full length reinforcement. From the test, it was observed that maximum increase of 16% was also achieved in bending-load capacity.
