BEHAVIOR OF TIE ELEMENTS OF PLAIN AND FIBROUS CONCRETE AND VARYING CROSS SECTIONS

The tension stiffening effect on reinforcing bars embedded in concrete prisms is investigated experimentally. Both metallic (steel) and nonmetallic (polyolefin and carbon) fibers of different dimensions are used in high-strength concrete mixtures. In addition, the cross section is varied. The softening behavior of the concrete, determined through a uniaxial tension procedure, was used in an analytical model. The model reproduced the dependency of the load-deformation responses of the elements on the tensile behavior of the concrete.
