Effects of Polypropylene Fiber on Shrinkage of Masonry Cement Mortar

Abstract:

Article Preview

Experiments were carried out to investigate the dry-shrinkage of masonry mortar affected by mass content of polypropylene fiber. The results show that proper content of polypropylene fiber is helpful to effectively reduce dry-shrinkage of mortar especially in early age, the reduction relates to water to cement ratio of mortar. Meanwhile, the relationships of water to cement ratio and content of polypropylene fiber in affecting dry-shrinkage of masonry mortar are analyzed, which can be as reference for selecting such optimum values as water to cement ratio and content of polypropylene fiber in practices.
