Investigation on the Effect of Varying Dosages of Steel Fibre on the Strength and Workability Properties Of High Strength Concrete

5 pagesPublished: July 22, 2017

Abstract

In this work the strength characteristics of steel fibre reinforced concrete with varying percentages of fibres is found and hence arrived at optimum percentage of steel fibres. M60 grade concrete as per particle packing method was designed with cement, sand and coarse aggregates (10mm and 20mm) which yielded a proportion of 1:1.79:1.11:2.08 with a w/c ratio of 0.30. The steel fibres were added at the rate of 0.5%, 0.75%, 1.0%, 1.25%, 1.50%, 1.75%, and 2.0% by volume fraction. Based on the compressive strength and tensile strength it is concluded that the optimum percentage of steel fiber to be added in the concrete mix is 1% by volume fraction.
