Abstract:The results of investigation into the erosion-abrasion resistance according to CRD-C 63-80 test method and abrasion resistance according to Bohme test method of steel fiber reinforced concrete specimens are discussed in the paper. Nine mix proportions were used. The water-cement ratios (w/c) were varied from 0.30 to 0.65. The volumetric percentage of hooked steel fibers were varied from 0.25 to 2.0 volume percent at the w/c of 0.30 and at the others the quantity of fibers was constant. In addition, mixes without fibers were made at each w/c. The results show that adding steel fibers to the concrete improves the resistances as measured by both test methods. The erosion-abrasion resistance is improved by an increase of compressive strength and an increase in fiber content. It can be correlated to improvements of abrasion resistance from the Bohme test method but only at constant w/c and different content of fibers.
