Index Analysis for Specimens of Reinforced Concretes with Mechanical Parameters


Article Preview

To study mechanical characteristics of general reinforced concrete in engineering, specimens of reinforced concrete with different mass ratios and specimens of fiber reinforced concrete with different distributing modes of steel fibers or mixed modes of fiberglass are produced. Testing results from these specimens state that recommended mass ratio is 1:4.29:0.74 of cement, sand to water for reinforced concrete, and mass ratio of mixed AR fiberglass is 4‰ or distributing mode of steel fibers is vertical 5 roots evenly for fiber reinforced concretes will have excellent mechanical properties. Analyzing mechanical indexes influencing characteristics of reinforced concretes, uniaxial compressive strength and ultimate strain are primary indexes, elastic modulus is an assistant index, and Poisson ratio and residual strength are both only referenced indexes.
