FIBROUS CONCRETE - PRODUCTION METHODS, PROPERTIES AND USE

FIBERBETONG-PRODUKTIONSMETODER, EGENSKAPER OCH ANUVACNDNING

The improvements which can be made by using fibre reinforcement in cement-based materials are greater moment capacity and impact strength, and better crack distribution, with smaller widths, in the case of restrained deformation, temperature gradients, etc. Continuous or discontinuous organic or inorganic fibres can be used to give a 1, 2 or 3-dimensional reinforcement effect. Asbestos cement is usually made by the wet process, but semi-dry and dry methods can also be used. Winding, spraying or laying-up are employed when continuous fibres are used. Short fibres mixed in by traditional methods are used in coarse matrices such as concrete. The changes caused in the stress-strain relationship are manifested in tension by (1) enhanced ultimate strength; (2) enhanced cracking stress; (3) much higher deformation capacity and (4) some change in stiffness. /TRRL/
