Research on Mechanical Performance of Sisal Fiber Reinforced Concrete and its Mechanism
According to experiments by comparing with normal cement concrete and other fiber reinforced concrete, they analyze the mechanical properties and features of sisal fiber reinforced concrete. Besides, they observe the fracture process of different ages and contents of sisal fiber reinforced concrete and analyze the bonding property, toughening effect and failure mechanism. The results show that sisal fiber reinforced concrete is superior to normal cement concrete on mechanical properties, and has a feature of multi-cracking, while compared with other fiber reinforced concrete, it is more economical.
