Influences of Processing and Testing Conditions on Flexural Behavior of Fiber-Reinforced Polymer-Modified Cement Mortar
In order to evaluate the flexural behavior of fiber-reinforced polymer cement mortar, three-point bending test is used. Compared with different test modes and different test rates of loading, 0.1 mm/min in displacement mode is the most suitable, under which the obtained data are stable and sensitive to the micro-crack formation. Besides, tests show that mixing fiber-reinforced polymer cement mortar at slow speed and curing specimens in dry condition benefit the behavior under flexural load of the mortar.
