The strengthening of RC structures with fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) materials has demonstrated enormous potential as a repairing material. However, their thermal and mechanical behaviors after exposure to elevated temperature remain an obstacle due to FRP’s sensitivity to high temperatures as compared with order structural materials. In this paper an experimental works was conducted to study the behavior of RC beam with NSM CFRP with different adhesive materials exposed to elevated temperature of 550°C for different periods of time and cooling schemes. In this experimental study 6 beams were cast, one beam (BN) was not exposed to elevated temperature as a control beam and the remaining beams were exposed to elevated temperature. These beams were tested under four-point loading. The effect of variables was studied in terms of ultimate failure load, maximum deflection and failure mode. From the test results, it could be concluded that ready-mix mortar could be as an alternative adhesive material. The ultimate load-carrying capacity of the RC beam was reduced for longer duration of elevated temperature.
