The structural behavior of fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) reinforced autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC) panels has been investigated. Four FRP/AAC panels and two non FRP AAC panels were prepared for testing. The panels were tested under four-point bending test to investigate their strength and displacement of mid-span responses using a bending pressure testing machine. Experimental results showed that FRP laminates increased the bearing capacity of AAC panels. A theoretical analysis was
