Title: Splitting Tensile Strength of Steel Fiber Reinforced Concrete Cylinders Consolidated by Rodding or Vibrating

Abstract:The relative strengths of rodded and externally vibrated steel fiber reinforced concrete cylinders are compared for both standard compression and plit-cylinder tension tests. Fiber concentrations ranged from 0 to 8 percent by weight of concrete. Test results of this pilot program indicate that external vibration increased the split-cylinder tension strength by as much as 20 percent over that of standard rodded cylinders. The tests also provided some data on the effects the addition of steel fibers has on the split-cylinder tension and compression strengths of concrete.
