Engineering properties of self consolidating concrete
The purpose of this study is to examine the effects of discrete Pitch-based carbon fibers on the fresh properties of self-consolidating concrete (SCC).Ten different carbon fiber-reinforced self-consolidating concrete (CFRSCC) mixtures were produced with two water/binder (W/B) ratios of 0.35 and 0.4, and 0%, 0.25%, 0.5%, 0.75%, 1% carbon fibers by concrete volume.
Fiber-reinforced self-consolidating concrete is a relatively new material in civil engineering applications.
Visual stability index (VSI) was also used to assess the segregation resistance of concrete.
Hardened properties such as compressive strength, splitting tensile strength, and fracture energy were evaluated.
Since its first publication in 1963, Properties of Concrete has been internationally acclaimed as the definitive work of reference on the subject for both the professional and the student engineer.
The book has been translated into 12 languages and has sold well over half a million copies.
These two mixes were mix M1 (SCC, 0% fibers) and mix M3 (CFRSCC, 0.50% fibers).
