Corrosion effects on pullout behavior of hooked steel fibers in self-compacting concrete
Fiber reinforced concrete structures are subjected to chloride and carbonation penetration that could initiate corrosion of steel fibers, with eventual pernicious consequences in terms of structural and durability performance. ...
Experimental characterization of the post-cracking response in Hybrid Steel/Polypropylene Fiber-Reinforced Concrete
This paper presents and discusses the results of experimental tests performed on concrete specimens internally reinforced with polypropylene and steel fibers. Specifically, samples of five mixtures (plus a reference plain ...
An experimental study of steel fiber-reinforced high-strength concrete slender columns under cyclic loading
Structural engineers usually limit the use of HSC columns to seismic active zones because of their britle behavior in comparison with NSC, even though it presents advantages both in terms of mechanics and durability. A ...
Influence of fiber orientation on the behavior of fiber reinforced concrete slabs
(John Wiley & Sons Inc, 2021-06)
After several decades of research studies, design rules for fiber reinforced concrete (FRC) are now available for several structural elements. Starting from standard tests, it is possible to determine design parameters and ...
Numerical modeling of steel fiber reinforced concrete with a discrete and explicit representation of steel fibers
This work presents a novel numerical model based on the use of coupling finite elements to simulate the behavior of steel fiber reinforced concrete (SFRC) with a discrete and explicit representation of steel fibers. The ...
Flexural performance of concrete beams reinforced with epoxy resin/glass and carbon fibers composites
Factors such as project and execution errors, lack of maintenance and inspection, and increases in loading can cause deficiencies to reinforced concrete structures. In this regard, there is the necessity of the application ...
