Acoustic Emission Response and Mechanical Characterization of Ultra High-Performance Concrete Types

Construction of modern structures and reconstruction of the existing ones impose very demanding requirements for the quality of materials used. High performance hybrid fiber reinforced concrete appears to be a material of great importance in the future. An innovative type of this concrete was tested and its properties were compared with those of reactive power concrete, high performance concrete and plain concrete. Compressive strength, flexural strength, toughness and modulus of elasticity were measured. For the purposes of toughness testing, an acoustic emission technique was used to detect cracking and fracture properties.
