Wide spread of RC structures in construction projects indicates the necessity of their service life prolongation. Perspective possibility to increase strength of RC structures is use of external composite tapes. The article presents theoretical research on the effectiveness of strengthening of RC bended elements with the use of composite tapes. Work also includes comparative analysis on the basis of calculations, according to normative regulations. With the use of developed algorithm parameters of stress-strain state and deformability of RC beams, strengthened with composite tapes were obtained. Study identified, that the most critical parameter was the steel bars` strain and yield point. Interesting finding of the study is the no-linearity of the strength growth of the studied elements with the increase of additional reinforcement amount. Consistent literature review was conducted, which identified the necessity to take into account different external factors and failure mode.
