Characteristics Properties of Concrete with Mixed Fibres Using Waste Plastic and Waste Coiled Steel Fibres
Characteristics Properties Of Concrete With Mixed Fibres Using Waste Plastic And Waste Coiled Steel Fibres Fiber Reinforced Concrete (FRC) is a composite material consisting of a matrix based on cement with an ordered or random fiber distribution that can be steel, nylon, polythene, etc.
Concrete has a higher brittleness with an increase in strength in general. This is a major drawback as brittleness can cause sudden and catastrophic failure, especially in structures that are subject to earthquake, blast or suddenly applied loads, i.e. impact.
The incorporation of fibers, especially steel, can at least partially overcome this serious disadvantage of concrete. The incorporation of fiber can cause a change in the mode of failure under compressive deformation from brittle to pseudo-ductile, thus imparting a degree of toughness to concrete.
The primary objective of this study is to study the properties of reinforced concrete containing polythene fibers experimentally.The properties of concrete, i.e. compressive strength and flexural strength, were studied.
