The key purpose of this paper is to present test results of incorporate recent developments in engineering and to analyse through a set of tests the structural response of T-section beams reinforced by pure GFRP bar beams with geopolymer concrete (GPC). The investigated parameters include the longitudinal reinforcement ratio and properties of GPC. The experimental results are discussed in terms of load-deflection relationship, width of cracks and modes of failure. In addition, the findings can be used to determine the applicability of the existing design requirements for estimating the load capacity of the beams.
