Meso-Level Numerical Study on Different Type of Fiber Reinforced Concrete

Abstract:

Article Preview

To investigate failure mechanism and toughening features of fiber reinforced concrete (FRC) with different reinforced fibers, meso-level numerical simulations have been conducted on FRCs incorporated with steel, glass and polypropylene fibers, respectively (which were named as SFRC, PPRC and GRC). The complete failure process of crack initiation, coalescence and development, interaction and final break have been simulated. By analyzing the failure patterns of specimens, also the spatial and temporal distribution of acoustic emission and loading - step curves, it can be concluded that both peak strength and toughness of SFRC and GRC can be greatly improved. However, for PRC, the improvement of peak strength is little while its toughness can be enhanced significantly.
