Formatted abstract
This thesis aims to investigate the effect of Fibre Reinforced Polymer (FRP) in increasing torsional capacity of Reinforced Concrete beams, focusing on the effects of various methods of wrapping applied.

A literature review of torsion models used to predict torsional behaviour precedes the experimental component of this thesis. The models presented represent current models upon which theoretical design procedures for the design of reinforced concrete beams in torsion are based.

This is followed by the experimental details and results, including a discussion, where there will be an analysis of the experimental data.

Several conclusions were reached from this thesis. The experimentation showed that FRP greatly increased the torsional capacity of the RC beams. The various styles of wrapping yielded several interesting results, giving torsional strength increment of approximately 16 to 143%.
