MECHANICAL PROPERTIES OF VARIOUS TYPES OF FIBRE REINFORCED CONCRETES. 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

This paper reports on the mechanical properties of concrete reinforced with carbon fibres, Aramid fibres, and high-strength Vinylon fibres. Compressive, tensile, and flexural tests have been conducted to prove that the strength of short-fibre FRC and its reinforcing efficiency depend on the material and volume ratio of the fibre. Flexural tests on fibre reinforced concrete (FRC) with continuous fibres using a three-dimensional fabric, and on a hybrid-type FRC with a three-dimensional fabric filled with short-fibre FRC, have clarified that the flexural characteristics generally depend upon the matrix at the initial stage of loading and upon the characteristics of the fibre used in the three-dimensional fabric at later stages.(A) For the covering abstract of the conference see IRRD 827953.
