INFLUENCE OF FIBER AGGREGATE INTERACTION ON SOME PROPERTIES OF STEEL FIBRE

Tests are reported in which the fiber-aggregate interaction is related to the properties of steel fiber concrete both in the fresh and hardened states. It is shown that compactibility, flexural and compressive strengths are reduced progressively by the presence of coarse aggregates. From the test results, a mix design for fiber concrete containing coarse aggregates to produce twice the flexural strength of the unreinforced matrix without bundling of fibers is presented.
