Fifteen reinforced concrete beams strengthened with carbon fiberglass reinforced plastic( CFRP) sheets were experimentally investigated to research the stiffness of the beams,and the effect of the initial load and pre-stressing of CFRP on stiffness of the beams was studied. A calculation method of the stiffness of the RC beams strengthened with pre-stressed CFRP sheets was proposed,after analyzing the method for calculating the stiffness of RC beams,which took into account the effects of pre-stressing force and initial load.It has been testified that the formulas are in agree with the result of experiments and can be available for reference in design.
