Title: The Structural Use of Fibrous Cement in Composite Concrete Construction
Author(s): Nalin J. Dave, David C. O'Leary, and John Saunders
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 511-532
Keywords: beams (supports); composite beams; composite construction (concrete to concrete); cracking (fracturing); deformation; fiber reinforced concretes; flexural strength; lightweight aggregates; loads (forces); partial prestressing; prestressed concrete
Abstract:Recent advances in the field of natural and man-made fibres have led to the development of fibre reinforced cement (fibrous-cement or f.r.c) composites with flexural properties far superior to cement paste or plain concrete. . .The test results show that profiled f.r.c. sheets considerably improve the structural performance of reinforced and partially prestressed composite beams.
