PBO fabric, CFRP fabric, and GFRP fabric were used as reinforcing materials in most studies regarding the FRCM composites [17, 18].
A total of 13 specimens were fabricated to evaluate the flexural behavior of RC slabs strengthened with FRCM composite.
Prior to strengthening the concrete slab by FRCM composite, the concrete specimens were rotated 180[degrees] so that the strengthening surface of specimens would be the upper surface.

Two methods are currently proving to be very useful in increasing the cross-section capacity of the bridge beam: the strengthening by fibres reinforced polymer (FRP) or fiber reinforced cementitious mortar (FRCM) [3-10] and the reinforcement with external tendons.
The effect of FRP or FRCM sheets and external prestressing tendons on the strength of RC beams has largely been investigated [11] with success.
Presently, the application of fiber-reinforced cementitious matrix (FRCM) materials may overcome such disadvantages by its resistance to high temperatures and radiation and high vapour diffusion ability [17-19].
Similarly, FRCM materials may be effective in order to protect the structural safety and serviceability of the minaret as well by following the approaches of architectural preservation and saving the integrity and strength before and after earthquakes.
For reinforced concrete (RC) elements, the simple application of fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) embedded in epoxy resin and/or fiber reinforced cementitious matrix (FRCM) can dramatically enhance strength and ductility of concrete columns.
Elements confined with FRCM often exhibit a flat or a descending postpeak branch, due to the progressive cracking of the binding mortar in the range of large deformation [4-6].
