Experimental Investigations on the Cyclic Behaviour of High Performance Steel Fibre Reinforced Concrete

This paper describes how earthquake loadings are characterized by high loading and cyclic loading to high stress levels. In order to safely sustain such loadings, the structure must be tough and ductile. By using high performance steel fiber reinforced concrete (HPSFRC), the amount of confining steel could be reduced, and this would result in more efficient construction of earthquake resistant structures. In order to implement safe and efficient designs using fiber reinforced concrete, a good understanding of its constitutive behavior under both static and dynamic loading is required. Hence, an experimental investigation was taken on in order to study the behavior of HPSFRC under static and cyclic loading. Addition of fibers in concrete matrix gave better confinement in concrete, thereby providing the suitability of using steel fibers in concrete structures subjected to seismic type of loading.
