Experimental Investigation on Stress-Strain Curves of Reactive Powder Concrete under Uniaxial Compression
Based on experiments of uniaxial compression and flexural experiments, the basic mechanical properties (compressive strength and flexural strength) of reactive powder concrete (RPC) were investigated, the effect of the steel fiber content on mechanical properties of RPC was studied in this work. The resu1ts indicate that the axial compressive strength of RPC had no obvious change with the change of steel fiber content. When the steel fiber content varied from 1.0% to 2.0%, the flexural strength of RPC had no obvious change.When the steel fiber content varied from 2.0% to 5.0%, the flexural strength of RPC increased dramaticlly with the increase of steel fibers content. According to experiment curves, an equation for the compressive stress-strain curve of RPC was deduced with different stee1 fiber content.
