Author(s): Nemkumar Banthia
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 91-120
Keywords: carbon; composite materials; cracking (fracturing); durability; fiber reinforced concretes; fibers; mechanical properties; tensile strength; toughness; Materials Research
Abstract:Describes improvements in the performance characteristics of cements due to carbon fiber reinforcement. In particular, the structure, physical properties, mechanical behavior, and durability aspects of carbon-cement composites using pitch-based fibers are discussed. The various possible applications of these composites in structural and nonstructural applications are enumerated and future research needs to be identified.
