Experimental Study on Mechanical Properties of Hybrid Fiber Reinforced Full Lightweight Aggregate Concrete
Tests were carried out to study mechanical properties of hybrid fiber reinforced full lightweight aggregate concrete (HFRFLAC), the hybrid fiber was composed by steel fiber and polypropylene fiber, the expanded-shale and lightweight sand were used as coarse and fine aggregates. The apparent density and strengths in cubic compressive, splitting tensile and flexural tensile states of HFRFLAC were obtained. The results show that the average dry apparent density increases with the increasing cement content, which is much more affected by fraction of steel fiber by volume than mass content of polypropylene fiber; the tensile strengths increase somewhat with the increasing mass content of polypropylene fiber; all of the strengths increase with the increasing fraction of steel fiber by volume, and obvious are the enhancement of tensile strengths; there are somewhat relevance between the effects of polypropylene fiber and steel fiber on mechanical properties of HFRFLAC.
