STEEL FIBER REINFORCED CONCRETE Nguyen Van CHANH (1) SUMMARY It is now well established that one of the important properties of steel fibre reinforced concrete (SFRC) is its superior resistance to cracking and crack propagation. One of the most significant breakthroughs in concrete technology at the end of the 20th century was the development of ultra-high performance fiber reinforced concrete (UHPFRC) with compressive strength and flexure strength beyond 160 MPa and 30 MPa, respectively; remarkable improvement in workability; durability resembled to natural rocks; ductility and toughness comparable to steel. DOAJ is an online directory that indexes and provides access to quality open access, peer-reviewed journals. Steel fibre (SF) is found to enhance the flexural and tensile strengths, and at the same time is able to resist the formation of macro cracking and concrete spalling. The main objectives of this investigation is to study the mechanical properties as well as durability properties HDPE fibre reinforced concrete (HFC) as well as Nylon fibre reinforced concrete (NFC). The fiber-reinforced concrete member may have a lightweight cellular concrete backing thereon for insulation purposes. It performs comparably to steel in the finished product in terms of material handling, structural erection, constructability, and other factors. Including SBR latex at a certain % of binder in the PSFC concrete improves the bonds within the cement matrix and steel fibres (SF). When the results were compared with the maximum load predictions of two proposed design methods, the predictions consistently underestimated actual loads. But unlike conventional reinforcement - which strengthens in one or possibly two directions - Steel fibres reinforce iso tropically, greatly improving the concrete's resistance to cracking. CFRP is a corrosion-free option for pre-tensioning and post-tensioning applications on concrete elements. Ultra-high-performance fibre-reinforced concrete is a recently developed low-porosity ceramic material with excellent mechanical performance, such as 28-day compressive and flexural strength around 150 MPa and 40 MPa, respectively, and modulus of elasticity of about 90 gPa. 4 FORMS OF FIBER REINFORCED CONCRETE 1.

Fiber Reinforced Concrete can be defined as a composite material consisting of mixtures of cement, mortar or concrete and discontinuous, discrete, uniformly dispersed suitable fibers. Beyerlein, "Nylon Fiber Facts," Clemson University,. Take steel fiber for example, theoretically, both the bending strength and the tensile strength will rise with the increase of fiber-content ratio. The variables were fiber volumetric ratio, concrete compressive strength, longitudinal reinforcement ratio and shear span-to-depth ratio. Some of the substances made by chemical synthesis fibers are utilized in concrete are carbon, nylon, polyester, polypropylene, and polyethylene. The properties of carbon fibers, such as high stiffness, high tensile strength, low weight, high chemical resistance, high temperature tolerance and low thermal expansion makes them one of the most promising fiber materials to be used in the Fiber Reinforced concrete (FRC). Before the discovery of it, the thread that was used for clothing purpose was made of animal and plant fibre. Since concrete is weak in tension hence some measures must be adopted to overcome this deficiency.

The introduction of these fibres result in increased toughness and ductility of hardened concrete. KRISHNAMOORTHY, AND K. If, instead of the polymer, we use portland cement and sand, the resulting material is glass fiber reinforced concrete--GFRC or sometimes GRC (the Brits call it glassfibre reinforced concrete). The compressive strength of the fiber reinforced concrete (FRC) was evaluated and the results were compared with results for similar materials reported before.
