Steel fiber reinforced concretes behaviour under biaxial flexure

Fehmi Çivici, Şerif Saylan


Concrete which is one of the most used structural material is recognized with brittle characteristics. Recently, the study of gaining ductile feature on concrete has been studied. One of these works is to add fibers in concrete. Fibers in concrete have different types such as steel, glass, synthetic and wood. Fiber concrete which is obtained by a mixture of cement, water, aggregate and fibers is often used in construction of bridge decks, airport pavements, parking areas subjected to cavitation and erosion surfaces. In this study, plain and steel fiber reinforced plate specimens’ behaviour subjected to biaxial flexure is examined experimentally. To compare plain and steel fiber reinforced plate specimens behaviour, the load-displacement curve of each specimen was obtained by experiments.
