Paper Title:
Mechanical Properties of Hybrid Nylon-Steel- and Steel-Fibre-Reinforced High Strength Concrete at Low Fibre Volume Fraction
  Abstract

The mechanical properties of hybrid nylon-steel-fiber-reinforced concrete were investigated in comparison to that of the steel-fiber-reinforced concrete, at the same volume fraction (0.5%). The combining of fibers, often called hybridization is investigated in this paper for a very high strength concrete of an average compressive strength of 105 MPa. Test results showed that fibers when used in a hybrid nylon-steel fibers reinforced concrete form could result in superior composite performance compared to steel-fiber-reinforced concrete. The basic property of the hybridized material that was evaluated and analyzed extensively was the modulus of rupture (MOR) and splitting tensile while the compressive strength was only slightly decreased compared to single steel fiber reinforced concrete. There is a synergy effect in the hybrid fibers system.
