Tests on Mechanical Properties and Anti-Explosion Performance of Steel-Fiber Reactive Powder Concrete
In order to get mechanical properties and anti-explosion capability parameters, some RPC samples with 5% steel fiber are tested, many groups data were obtained such as compressive strength, shear strength and fracture toughness. The model tests are also carried out on RPC shelter plate under contact explosion, the most important parameter to express anti-explosion capability,i.e. compression coefficient of the material, is obtained by above experiments and theory study, the results of tests show RPC with steel fiber has very high strength and anti-explosion capability, its compressive strength and anti-explosion capability are about six and three times higher than those of C30 concrete respectively.
