Title: Performance of E-Glass Fibers as Reinforcement for Portland Cement Mortar
Author(s): Friedrich Goeman
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 287-298
Keywords: abrasion; aggregates; alkalies; corrosion; dynmaic modulus of elasticity; expansion; flexural strength; glass fibers; hydration; modulus of elasticity; mortars (material); portland cement; reinforcing materials; tensile strength; tests
Abstract:Most test procedures used to measure the effect of alkali reaction upon E-type of glass fibers in cement matrices bear little relationship between the test and actual field conditions. This paper seeks to establish a more meaningful test procedure and to demonstrate, as a result, that commercially available E-type of glass fibers may be safely formulated in cement matrices.
