MECHANICAL BEHAVIOUR OF FRC MATERIALS WITH ADDED MICROFILLER. 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

The permeability and mechanical behaviour of a cement based material is closely related to the microstructure of the material. Adding microfillers to the cement changes the microstructure and as a consequence of this, the total porosity (and thus the permeability) of the material is reduced. The present work describes the mechanical behaviour of cement paste with added microfiller, reinforced with various amounts of polypropylene fibres. The test specimens have been exposed to uniaxial tension and the results are reported.(A) For the covering abstract of the conference see IRRD 827953.
