Paper Title:
Static-Dynamic Properties of Reactive Powder Concrete with Blast Furnace Slag
  Abstract

Reactive powder concrete (RPC) containing blast furnace slag prepared for hydraulic structure with a designed strength of 150 MPa is examined. We first investigate mixture proportions of RPC to fit the strength requirement, and then, concentrate on the material with 50% replacement of silica fume by blast furnace slag to study seismic resistant properties. Results indicate that curing process and steel fiber can enhance the compressive strength, flexural strength, shear strength and fracture toughness. With 210°C curing, flexural strength of RPC containing 2% steel fibers reaches 91 MPa, almost three times without the fibers. Meanwhile, the shear strength is 47.8 MPa. Dynamic stress-strain curves determined by SHPB test display that the compressive strength of RPC increases with increasing applied strain rate. Applied strain rate dominates the stress-strain behavior and fracture energy of RPC. Toughness index of RPC is improved powerfully by adding a few steel fibers. The fracture toughness of RPC with 50% slag replacement comes to 1.08 MPa·m1/2, and reaches 2.67 MPa·m1/2 as 2% steel fibers are added.
