Abstract:

The flexural behaviour of concrete specimens reinforced with chopped polyethylene fibre, which is a newly developed fibre for concrete reinforcement in Japan, is discussed. The chopped filaments are incorporated into concrete by mixing. It is shown that the fibre reinforcement significantly improves the toughness by sustaining useful load beyond the first crack load. Post-crack behaviour is greatly affected by loading velocity, because it is governed by the viscoelastic characteristics of polyethylene fibre. (Author/TRRL)
