Analysis of the Strain-Rate Beahavior of a Basalt Fiber Reinforced Mortar

Article Preview

Fiber reinforced inorganic materials, such as concrete or mortars, are expected to present good mechanical properties in case of high dynamic loading conditions, as those induced by impact or blast actions. Furthermore, basalt fibers, recently widely investigated in structural applications, are also expected to present good performance in case of high strain-rate dynamic conditions. The present paper presents the results of a dynamic characterization of basalt fiber reinforced mortar, carried out at DynaMat laboratory of the University of Applied Sciences of Southern Switzerland. Dynamic tensile failure tests have been conducted on mortar samples at selected strain rates, using a Modified Hopkinson bar apparatus.
