Title: Steel Fibers in Partially Prestressed Composite Concrete Beams
Author(s): David C. O'Leary, Nalin J. Dave, and John Saunders
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 477-496
Keywords: beams (supports); composite beams; composite construction (concrete to concrete); cracking (fracturing); deflection; fiber reinforced concretes; flexural strength; loads (forces); metal fibers; partial prestressing; precast concrete; prestressed concrete
Abstract:As part of a large programme investigating the flexural behavior of full size partially prestressed composite T-beams, three dimensionally randomly distributed steel fibres have been introduced into a limited number of the precast webs. . .The tests show that steel fibre reinforcement can result in some improvement in the flexural behaviour of partially prestressed composite T-beams.
