In this study, experimental investigations were performed on steel mesh (SM), steel fibre (SF) and high-performance polypropylene fibre (HPPF) reinforced shotcrete (HPPFRS) panels to evaluate performance characteristics such as toughness, flexural ductility, energy absorption and load capacity. The panel tests, in accordance with European specification for sprayed concrete (EFNARC), were made on 18 prismatic specimens having the same mix designs and were cured for 28 days but reinforced with various fibres. In addition, the rebound characteristics of these mixes were determined to compare the actual in situ fibre contents.

Comparative evaluation of steel mesh, steel fiber and high performance polypropylene fiber-reinforced concrete in panel/beam tests
Ceylan, Semih; Turanlı, Lütfullah; Department of Civil Engineering (2014)
Comparison of concrete mixtures containing steel mesh, steel fiber and polypropylene fibers were evaluated in terms of toughness, flexural strength, compressive strength and split tensile strength. Five types of concrete were prepared with steel mesh, steel fiber and polypropylene fiber with the identical water/cement (w/c) ratio and the identical workability. 10x60x60 cm plates, 8x8x32 cm beams and 10x20 cm cylindrical concrete specimens were prepared. Compressive strength, split-tensile strength and tough...
Parameter optimization of steel fiber reinforced high strength concrete by statistical design and analysis of experiments
Ayan, Elif; Saatçioğlu, Ömer; Department of Industrial Engineering (2004)
This thesis illustrates parameter optimization of compressive strength, flexural strength and impact resistance of steel fiber reinforced high strength concrete (SFRHSC) by statistical design and analysis of experiments. Among several factors affecting the compressive strength, flexural strength and impact resistance of SFRHSC, five parameters that maximize all of the responses have been chosen as the most important ones as age of testing, binder type, binder amount, curing type and steel fiber volume fract...
Ballistic impact performance of an armor material consisting of alumina and dual phase steel layers
Ubeyli, Mustafa; Deniz, Huseyin; DEMİR, TEYFİK; Ögel, Bilgehan; Gurel, Bayram; KELEŞ, Ömer (2011-03-01)
Utilization of a ceramic front layer provides an improvement in the ballistic efficiency of monolithic metallic materials. In the current paper, the ballistic behavior of laminated composite having alumina front and dual phase steel backing layers was studied using 7.62 mm armor piercing (AP) projectiles under normal impact. The variables used were martensite content of the backing layer and the areal density of the composite. Experimental results showed that utilization of a 6 mm thick alumina front layer ...
Seismic upgrading of reinforced concrete frames with structural steel elements
Özçelik, Ramazan; Binici, Barış; Department of Civil Engineering (2011)
This thesis examines the seismic internal retrofitting of existing deficient reinforced concrete (RC) structures by using structural steel members. Both experimental and numerical studies were performed. The strengthening methods utilized with the scope of this work are chevron braces, internal steel frames (ISFs), X-braces and column with shear plate. For this purpose, thirteen strengthened and two as built reference one bay one story portal frame specimens having 1/3 scales were tested under constant grav...
Behavior of steel-concrete partially composite beams with channel type shear connectors
Baran, Eray; Topkaya, Cem (2014-06-01)
This paper summarizes the findings of an experimental study investigating the flexural behavior of partially composite beams incorporating channel type shear connectors. Results from monotonic load testing of four full-scale steel-concrete composite beams and a steel beam are presented. The main effort focused on identifying the variation of strength and stiffness properties of beams with various degrees of partial composite action. Behavior of channel shear connectors in the composite beam specimens is rel...
