Paper Title:
Static Mechanical Properties and Impact Resistance of Steel Fiber Reinforced High-Strength Lightweight Aggregate Concrete
  Abstract

Since high strength of lightweight aggregate concrete leads to increased brittleness, fiber reinforcement should be considered for improving strength and ductility. 5 groups of SFLWC specimens with different steel fiber volumes including 0.0%, 0.5%, 1.0%, 1.5% and 2.0% were tested to investigate the effect of steel fiber content on the static mechanical properties and impact resistance of lightweight aggregate concrete. The static mechanical properties include the prismatic compressive strength, splitting tensile strength, first-crack flexural strength, flexural strength, and flexural toughness, etc. The experimental results indicated that addition of steel fiber can greatly improve such mechanical properties as the splitting tensile strength, flexural strength, flexural toughness and impact resistance, but leads to a little effect on compressive strength. Further more, the author suggests the feasible volume ratio of this kind of steel fiber is 1-1.5%.
