Polypropylene Fiber Reinforced Concrete for Airfield Pavements:Modeling of Stress-Strain Curve Under Compression

Abstract:

Article Preview

An analytical model for compressive stress-strain curve of polypropylene fiber reinforced concrete (PPFRC) was proposed. The polypropylene fiber used was 60-mm long twisted fiber with aspect ratio of 120. The fiber was added in three volume fractions 0.2%, 0.4% and 0.6%. Tow concrete mixtures with varying water-cement ratio were used. The accuracy of the proposed model was evaluated by comparing the area under stress-strain curves for experimental and analytical model. The results showed good agreement between the experimental and analytical curves. In addition; empirical equations were proposed to quantify the effect of polypropylene fiber on compressive strength, strain at peak stress, and toughness of concrete in terms of fiber volume fraction.
