A fabric, tapes, that are glued to the outer tensile surface, which are considered as the external composite reinforcement with tensile steel reinforcement, are currently used to strengthen reinforced concrete beams. The results of the experimental studies presented in this article have shown the possibilities of effective application of technical polyamide (nylon) fabric produced by «Khimvolokno Plant» JSC «Grodno Azot», and glass fabrics, produced by JSC «Polotsk-Steklovolokno» for

Experimental studies have shown that the external reinforcing of the tensile zone with technical polyamide (nylon) fabric and fiberglass changes the beam failure mode, increases the bearing capacity of reinforced concrete beams in comparison with beams without strengthening by 16% – 38%, depending on the material and the method of strengthening.
