EFFECT OF LATERAL STRESS ON THE DEBONDING AND PULLOUT OF STEEL FIBERS IN A CEMENTITIOUS MATRIX

In this paper, a novel experimental setup is developed for fiber pull-out test under unidirectionally applied lateral stress. Results on steel fiber under various levels of lateral compression are reported. Effect of lateral tension is currently under investigation and will be reported in a subsequent paper. From the measured fiber load versus displacement curves, interfacial properties are derived and their sensitivity to applied lateral stress evaluated. The results can provide insight to the effectiveness of fiber reinforcement in applications with significant lateral stresses acting on the fibers.
