Title: Bearing Capacity of Fiber Reinforced Concrete
Author(s): W.F. Chen and J.L. Carson
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 209-220
Keywords: axial loads; bearing capacity; compressive strength; ductility; fiber reinforced concretes; metal fibers; modulus of elasticity; tests
Abstract:This experiment was designed to determine the influence of the randomly oriented fiber wire on the bearing capacity and ductility of fiber reinforced concrete materials through the testing of standard 6 in. diameter cylinders of various height. It was found that the bearing capacity of reinforced material was significantly higher than that of unreinforced material. . .It was also found that concrete materials under axial symmetric stress conditions can sustain tensile strains on the order of 13 to 14 times those normally measured in direct tensile testing.
