Strengthening existing concrete members using externally bonded steel plates (BSP) is an effective method of enhancing both serviceability and ultimate strength of concrete members. In recent years, several BSP field applications, for both building and bridges, have been reported in many countries. In addition, extensive experimental and theoretical investigations of the factors nfluencing the structural performance of epoxy bonded plated concrete beams have been reported by many researchers. This paper presents a review of the previous research on the structural behavior of composite steel plated concrete beams. An overview of the effectiveness of the bonded plate on the serviceability, strength and mode of failure of strengthened reinforced concrete beams is presented.
