Paper Title:
Influence of Fiber Type on Concrete Flexural Toughness
  Abstract

Using PCER (post-crack energy ratio) method and plain concrete specimen as reference, the flexural toughness enhancing ability of propylene spinning fiber, propylene monofilament fiber and end-deformed steel fiber was studied. Experiment results show that under the common engineering dosage, the flexural toughness enhancing ability of end-deformed steel fiber is far more outstanding than propylene fibers, and comparing with each other, the flexural toughness enhancing ability of propylene spinning fiber is better than propylene monofilament fiber. As far as one type of fiber is concerned, under the same dosage, along with the enhancement of concrete strength grade, the flexural toughness enhancing ability tends to decrease. Meanwhile, along with enhancement of curing age, the flexural toughness enhancing ability tends to decrease also.
