Abstract:
This paper describes a study of the use of Superplasticizers in concrete reinforced with alkali resistant, chopped glass fibres. It was possible to obtain fibre loadings ranging from 1 to 8 per cent by volume, resulting in flexural strengths of up to 70 Mpa. . .Major considerations in this application are the regulation of matrix stiffening time and prevention of aggregate segregation.
