The effect of reinforcing bar ratio  on the flexural strength of the strengthened beams is examined. Twelve concrete beam specimens with dimensions of 150 mm width; 200 mm height; and 2000 mm length were manufactured and tested. Beam sections with three different reinforcing ratios; ; were used as longitudinal tensile reinforcement in specimens. Nine specimens were strengthened in flexure by CFRP sheets. The other three specimens were considered as control specimens. The width; length and number of layers of CFRP sheets varied in different specimens. The flexural strength and stiffness of the strengthened beams increased compared to the control specimens. From the results of this study; it is concluded that the design guidelines of ACI 440.2R-02 and ISIS Canada overestimate the effect of CFRP sheets in increasing the flexural strength of beams with small  values compared to the maximum value; max; specified in these two guidelines.With the increase in the  value in beams; the ratios of test load to the load calculated using ACI 440 and ISIS Canada increased. Therefore; the equations proposed by the two design guidelines are more appropriate for beams with large  values. In the strengthened specimens with the large reinforcing bar ratio; close to the maximum code value of max; failure occurred with adequate ductility.},
