Macro synthetic fiber incorporated concretes are increasingly used for concrete applications owing to their high energy absorption capacity, toughness and impact resistance. The aim of this study is twofold; first to investigate the effects of synthetic fibers on the flexural performance and thus the energy absorption characteristics of normal and high performance concrete (HPC), and secondly to investigate the effects of specimen size. For this experimental study, eight concrete groups were designed using synthetic fibers of various amounts (0, 3, 6 and 9 kg/m3 ) for both normal and high performance concretes. The energy absorption characteristics of the concrete mixtures were determined using prismatic beam specimens of two different dimensions. First group had dimensions of 150 mm x 150 mm x 600 mm, and the second groups had dimensions of 75 mm x 75 mm x 325 mm. Tests were conducted at the end of 28 days using a strain controlled loading scheme by an MTS Landmark 250 kN loading frame. Besides the energy absorption capacity, other mechanical properties such as elasticity modulus and compressive strength were also determined. The energy absorption capacity of concrete has been enhanced significantly with increasing the amount of synthetic fibers.

With the increasing aim of incorporating concrete in different applications and infrastructure elements, the use of macro synthetic fiber incorporated concretes has become real popular thanks to their high energy absorption capacity, toughness and impact resistance. The aim of this study is to investigate the effects of synthetic fibers on toughness and energy absorption of normal and high performance concretes. For this experimental study, eight concrete groups were designed using synthetic fibers of vario...
Effect of test methods on the performance of fiber reinforced concrete with different dosages and matrices
Hetemoğlu, Yalçın Oğuz; Yaman, İsmail Özgür; Department of Civil Engineering (2018)
Through the last few decades, the idea of adding fibers in to concrete has been quite improved, considering the significant contribution of fibers to the mechanical properties of concrete such as tensile strength, energy absorption capacity and ductility. As a result of many intensive research Fiber Reinforced Concrete (FRC) has become a high-tech material that ensures great performance yet needs efficient design and application. However, the lack of a universally accepted approach and standardized test met...
Effect of triisopropanol amine and calcium nitrate on the strength development of glass fiber reinforced concrete t
Alkılıç, Mustafa Onur; Yaman, İsmail Özgür; Öztürk, Abdullah; Department of Cement Engineering (2015)
This thesis work aims to research the possibility of acceleration in strength development by the use of Calcium Nitrate (Ca(NO3)2) and Triisopropanol Amine (TIPA) in the production of glass fiber reinforced concrete, also known as GFRC or GRC. In conventional cementitious systems, Ca(NO3)2 is used as an accelerator, and TIPA is typically used as a grinding agent for cement. In this thesis study TIPA is used in order to increase the ultimate strength of the concrete whose early strengths are increased by Ca(...
Effect of fiber type and concrete strength on the energy absorption capacity of fiber reinforced concrete plates under quasi-static bending
Mercan, Ali Macit; Yaman, İsmail Özgür; Department of Civil Engineering (2019)
With all the known solid advantages of concrete, it has also limitations in its mechanical properties, such as low ductility, tensile strength and energy absorption capacity/toughness. In order to eliminate or minimize these limitations, some developments have been worked up by introducing natural or artificial fibers into the concrete mixture. The main scope of this thesis is to observe the effect of different fiber types and dosages on the performance of two different concrete grades. Two steel fibers wit...
Effect of mixture proportioning on the strength and mineralogy of magnesium phosphate cements
Bilginer, Baki Aykut; Erdoğan, Sinan Turhan (Elsevier BV, 2021-3)
Magnesium potassium phosphate cement (MKPC) has properties advantageous over ordinary portland cement such as quick setting and rapid strength gain. Although the effect of mixture proportioning on MKPC pastes has been studied, there are conflicting reports on how calcination of magnesia, parameters like magnesium-to-phosphate ratio (M/P) and water-to-binder ratio (W/B), added materials like borax and fly ash, or the addition of sand influence mineralogy and properties like setting and strength. These factor...
