In this study, anchoring method of Carbon Fiber Sheet (CFS) bonded to tension surface for flexural strengthening of reinforced concrete (RC) beams was examined experimentally. The anchoring method proposed in this study was that CFS for anchoring with fiber direction inclined 45 degree to the longitudinal axis of the beam was bonded in U-shape. As a result of comparison with the method that fiber direction was perpendicular to axis, it was indicated that the former was more effective than the latter.
