BEHAVIOUR, DESIGN AND APPLICATION OF POLYACRYLONITRILE. 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

During the last five years the development of polyacrylonitrile fibre concrete led to an interesting material for modern structures. Depending on the special demand the behaviour of elements can be influenced by choosing different fibre types and amounts. From a parametric study the influence of fibre amount, fibre length and other parameters on the mechanical characteristics could be understood. Based on the results of spacing-concept methodology a simple design attempt is shown. Finally some recent applications of polyacrylonitrile fibre concrete are presented. A primary target for this application is to minimize cracking due to early shrinkage in the edge beam of bridges. For the covering abstract of the conference see IRRD 827953.
