This research study was conducted to investigate the shear strengthening of beams with large opening using CFRP strips. The principle focus was to determine the effects of the circular and square shape openings. The amount and configuration of CFRP strips was determined based on the failure behavior of the corresponding beam without strengthening. The amount of opening (circular and square) was kept as 8% of the beam elevation. The circular opening caused about 76 % loss of capacity compared to the solid beam and the square opening resulted in about 74 %. After applying CFRP; 46.22% capacity was regained for beam with square opening compared to solid beam. Similarly, for the beam with the circular opening regained 45.35% of capacity compared to solid beam.
