Mechanical properties of hybrid fiber reinforced concrete

2006-07-07
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 can be 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 composed of micro fibers. 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. It was observed that micro steel fibers contributed to the strength and toughness whereas polypropylene fibers are effective in providing ductility.

LINEAR CONTACT ALGORITHM FOR RIGID-PLASTIC FINITE-ELEMENT SIMULATION
TEKKAYA, AE; SEN, A (1992-12-01)
The rigid-plastic finite element analysis of metal forming processes is known to be much more efficient and stable than the elastic-plastic one. This efficiency results from the absence of kinematical nonlinearities in the formulation. Contact algorithms used in rigid-plastic models must agree with this fact, otherwise the efficiency can be damaged seriously.
Deformation Analysis of Elastic-Plastic Two Layer Tubes Subject to Pressure: an Analytical Approach
Eraslan, Ahmet Nedim (2004-06-01)
Analytical solutions are obtained for axisymmetric elastic-plastic deformations in tightly fitted concentric tubes with fixed ends subjected to either internal or external pressure. Tresca's yield criterion and its associated flow rule are used to estimate the elastic-plastic response of the assembly. The closed form solutions for all elastic-plastic deformation stages are obtained by assuming linear hardening material behavior. Some numerical examples are handled using the mechanical properties of real eng...
Mechanical, flow and electrical properties of thermoplastic polyurethane/fullerene composites: Effect of surface modification of fullerene
Tayfun, Umit; KANBUR, YASİN; ABACI, UFUK; GÜNEY, HASAN YÜKSEL; Bayramlı, Erdal (2015-10-01)
Thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) composites with fullerene loadings varying from 0.5 to 2 weight% were prepared by melt-mixing method. Nitric acid oxidation and silanization were applied to fullerene surface to improve interfacial interactions with TPU matrix. The influence of surface modifications of fullerene on mechanical, melt flow and electrical properties of TPU based composites were investigated. Incorporation of fullerene leads to nearly twofold increase in tensile strength and Young's modulus of th...
Deformation compatibility of masonry and composite materials
Bespalov, V. V.; Ucer, D.; Salmanov, I. D.; Kurbanov, I. N.; Kupavykh, S. V. (2018-01-01)
Fiber Reinforced Polymers (FRP) are commonly used nowadays for strengthening deteriorated structures. The purpose of this research was to determine the combined behavior of masonry walls and reinforcing meshes together, according to their deformation characteristics. A sample wall with average masonry parameters and seven different common polymer nets on them were modeled in Abaqus Software. Moreover, a case study wall was also modeled according to the strength values obtained from direct testing of a demol...
