Abstract:
Article presents selected conclusions derived from a slurry-infiltrated fiber concrete (SIFCON) research program performed by a New Mexico research group under an Air Force contract. The selected conclusions discussed concern certain material properties of several SIFCON mixes tested under uniaxial, unconfined compression. The article concerns itself with the effect of varying the two parameters of water-cement and fly ash-cement ratios on the compressive strength.
