Title: Fiber Reinforced High Performance Concrete for Special Applications
Author(s): Halina Szklorzova, Radek Holesinsky, Josef Kratky, Jan Krestan, Stanislav Rolc, and Lenka Smetanova
Publication: Special Publication

Keywords: reinforced concrete, high performance concrete, mechanical and fracture parameters, explosion resistance
Abstract:The experimental work is aimed at designing the concrete mixtures for special applications, in which several types of aggregate and reinforcement are used. The effects of aggregate types and sizes and types of reinforcement (oriented and randomly dispersed) are presented. The reinforcements used are various metallic and non-metallic nets and dispersed fibers. Mechanical and explosion tests were performed and the effect of different kinds of aggregate and reinforcement on explosion resistance and mechanical performance of the concrete samples were evaluated.
