Since the first structures were formed, they have been plagued by
deterioration and destruction. Strengthening has become the
acceptable way of improving service life and durability of such
structures. A strengthened structure that fulfills all demand of
load carrying capacity might not satisfy demand for durability and
aesthetic appearance. Hence Fiber-reinforced polymer materials are
used in different configuration and techniques for strengthening of
Reinforced concrete elements. Near surface mounted (NSM) method has
recently emerged as a promising technology for strengthening, that
consists of placing FRP reinforcing bars for flexural and shear
strengthening of deficient RC member in terms of load, moment,
deflection, crack patterns. The reinforcement is embedded in
grooves cut onto the surface of the member to be strengthened and
filled with appropriate binding agent such as epoxy paste. This
technique has numerous potential advantages over externally bonded
FRP strengthening systems, and is able to fully employ the strength
of FRP materials because of superior bond performance.Thus use of
NSM technique is strongly recommended for retrofitting of elements
