Paper Title:
Study on Experiment of Concrete Compounding XYPEX and Steel Fiber
  Abstract

To the exacting underwater engineering and waterproof projects, the impervious performance of concrete plays a crucial role in the whole project. XYPEX is a special crystalline powder waterproof material, it is new and effective which is widely used in the basements, dams and other waterproof projects. Adding steel fiber into concrete, the strength of concrete will obviously be improved. The paper makes a comparison of the compressive strength, splitting strength and impermeability test of concrete specimens with two different materials-XYPEX (waterproof material) and steel fiber, and also studies the effect of the two different materials on concrete compressive strength, splitting strength, impermeability and relevant laws, along with discussing the reaction mechanism because of the addition of this two materials.
