STRENGTH PROPERTIES OF MESHED VINYLON FIBRE REINFORCED MORTAR WITH NEW ARTIFICIAL AGGREGATES. FIBRE REINFORCED CEMENTS AND CONCRETES: RECENT DEVELOPMENTS. PROCEEDINGS OF AN INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE HELD AT THE UNIVERSITY OF WALES, COLLEGE OF CARDIFF, SCHOOL OF ENGINEERING, UNITED KINGDOM, SEPTEMBER 18-20, 1989

Even though lots of strong fibers such as carbon, aramid and vinylon fibers are contained in mortar, they do not work as reinforcements unless the mortar itself and the mortar/fibre interface have sufficient strength. On the other hand, less weight materials which have often lower strength need to be effectively reinforced to resist the acting loads. In this paper, experimental studies of effective reinforcement techniques using vinylon fibres are presented. Newly developed vinylon triaxially bonded mesh was used to reinforce three different types of mortar. Two of them are using special light weight artificial aggregates which were made from fly ash. Mechanical properties of the composite materials are especially studied. Finally, influences of the strength of matrix and the mesh arrangement are discussed.(A) For the covering abstract of the conference see IRRD 827953.
