COMPARATIVE STUDY OF PREIDCTIONS OF FLEXURAL STRENGTH OF STEEL FIBER CONCRETE

In this paper existing methods for predicting flexural strength of steel fiber concrete composites are reviewed and compared, and a modified empirical approach is developed to predict the flexural strength of the fiber concrete composites. The direct tensile strength of the composite is used as the basic parameter in this approach. Stress distribution is established from the findings of flexural tests conducted as part of this investigation on fiber concrete prisms. A comparativs study of the test values of an earlier investigation on fiber concrete slabs and the computed values from existing methods, including the one proposed, is presented.
