Fiber reinforcement is commonly used to provide toughness and ductility to brittle cementitious matrices. Reinforcement of concrete with a single type of fiber may improve the desired properties to a limited level. A composite is termed as hybrid, if two or more types of fibers are rationally combined to produce a composite that derives benefits from each of the individual fibers and exhibits a synergetic response. This study aims to characterize and quantify the mechanical properties of hybrid fiber reinforced concrete. For this purpose nine mixes, one plain control mix and eight fiber reinforced mixes were prepared. Six of the mixes were reinforced in a hybrid form. Four different types of fibers were used in combination, two of which were macro steel fibers, and the other two were micro fibers. Volume percentage of fiber inclusion was kept constant at 1.5%. In hybrid reinforced mixes volume percentage of macro fibers was 1.0% whereas the remaining fiber inclusion was v composed of micro fibers. Slump test was carried out for each mix in the fresh state. 28-day compressive strength, flexural tensile strength, flexural toughness, and impact resistance tests were performed in the hardened state. Various numerical analyses were carried out to quantify the determined mechanical properties and to describe the effects of fiber inclusion on these mechanical properties.

Investigation of the variations in microstructure and mechanical properties of dual-matrix ductile iron by Magnetic Barkhausen Noise analysis
Gür, Cemil Hakan; Erdogan, Mehmet (Informa UK Limited, 2008-01-01)
The variations in the microstructure and tensile properties of dual-matrix ductile irons have been investigated non-destructively by Magnetic Barkhausen Noise (MBN) method. Specimens have been intercritically austenitised at 795 degrees C and 815 degrees C for 20 minutes, and then oil-quenched to obtain different martensite volume fractions. Two specimens, namely as-cast and oil-quenched from 900 degrees C, were prepared for comparison purpose. To investigate the effect of tempering, some specimens were tem...
Analysis of the flexural strength of prestressed concrete flanged sections
Baran, Eray; French, Catherine (Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute, 2005-01-01)
Inconsistencies in the sectional response of prestressed concrete flanged sections predicted by the AASHTO LRFD and AASHTO Standard Specifications, including the maximum reinforcement limits, may arise due to different interpretations of the equivalent rectangular compressive stress block idealization. Strain compatibility analyses with nonlinear material properties were performed for a variety of non-rectangular prestressed concrete sections to identify the inconsistencies between the two specifications. R...
Excessive damage increase in dual phase steels under high strain rates and temperatures
Cobanoglu, Merve; Ertan, Rasim K.; Şimşir, Caner; Efe, Mert (SAGE Publications, 2020-09-01)
Damage formation in dual phase steels is a complex process and it may be sensitive to the deformation conditions and mechanisms. In this study, the damage parameter is measured and compared under quasi-static and industrial forming conditions (temperatures: 25 vs 200, 300 degrees C and strain rates: 10(-3)vs 10 s(-1)) for DP590 and DP800 steels. Resonance frequency and ultrasonic sound velocity techniques are utilized for the measurements to test the effectiveness and validity of each technique. At a given ...
Analytical modeling of fiber reinforced composite deep beams
Yağmur, Eren; Burak Bakır, Burcu; Department of Civil Engineering (2018)
Discrete fibers are often used as reinforcement to increase the tensile and shear strengths of concrete. For many years, the behavior of fiber reinforced composite members has been investigated both experimentally and analytically. The influence of fibers on the behavior of shear critical members is quite significant, therefore, it is inevitable to develop a method, which estimates the shear strength of fiber reinforced composite deep beams realistically. This is why one of the main objectives of this study...
