Experimental study on stress strain behavior of steel fibre reinforced concrete


Rakesh DR, Kavitha S, Dr. T Felix Kala

In a recent days the applications of high strength concrete has increased in many parts of the world. This growth has been possible as a recent developments in technology and demand for high strength concrete there are many advantages in using high strength concrete in building construction. Such as, reduction in member size, reduction in self-weight and early stripping of framework. Reduced member sizes increase amount of rental area and this is beneficial, when there are architectural restrictions on column size or when land prices are very high. The addition of steel fiber to high strength concrete in various volumes fractions, can be lengthen concrete in various volume fraction, can lengthen the time elapsed before cracking and can provide a confinement. The experimental program was designed to the effect of steel fibers on compressive strength, split tensile strength of high strength concrete and testing of cubes of size (150mm x 150mm x 150mm), cylinders of 150mm diameter, height 300mm, beam (150 x 150 x 700), the mix proportion for M20 grade of concrete. Then the steel fibers were added in the volume fraction of 0%, 0.5%, 1.0% and 1.5% and L/D ratio will be taken as 60.
