Abstract: This paper offers the experimental have a take a look at at the flexural behaviour of HYFRC beams bolstered with glass fiber bolstered polymer (GFRP) rebar and in comparison with everyday metal reinforcement beams. Three beams reinforced with GFRP rebar and three beams of traditional concrete metal strengthened with absolutely six beams have been casted and tested under two points loading. The partner specimens were casted along with beam and tested for concrete homes. Steel and glass fibres are used toimprove the concrete assets. From checking out, load carrying capability, loaddeflection traits, crack sample, crack width, concrete traces throughout move phase and failure mode have been mentioned stiffness, ductility and power dissipation potential had been additionally calculated. The average ultimate load wearing potential of GFRP rebar and normal steel reinforcement beam is one hundred twenty five.8KN and ninety seven.5KN respectively. The most deflection cited at their closing load inside the GFRP rebar and regular metal reinforcement beam is 27. Three mm and sixteen. 3 mm respectively. It changed into also found that after load elimination, deflected GFRP beam regain its authentic function and crack width also reduced. In metal beam, metallic rebar were yielded, after load elimination, no deflection regain and crack width reduction have been observed.

Keywords: GFRP, Hybrid Fibre, Flexural Testing, Stiffness, Ductility and Energy Dissipation Capacity.
