Abstract:The characteristics of CFCC, including mechanical properties, fatigue, relaxation, and anticorrosive properties, are described. Examples of actual bridges in which CFCC has been used as a reinforcement are shown. In summarizing the investigation of these characteristics and the results of such tests as adhesion with concrete, antifatigue characteristics, antialkali characteristics, relaxation, and temperature cycle tests, it was confirmed that CFCC is a material suitable for tension applications in PC bridges.
