Shear and Impact Behaviour of Reactive Powder Concrete with Varying Fibre Content

8 pagesPublished: July 22, 2017

Abstract

Reactive powder concrete (RPC) is a novel material due to its high strength and enhanced durability properties. These properties have made it choicest material for external facade cladding thus enabling a considerable reduction in the thickness of concrete elements. The mix design of RPC is such that it affects the heat of hydration in concrete due to its reduced cementitious content. The advantage of this concrete or so to say mortar hinders other properties like permeability, creep and shrinkage. To one limit the material becomes more brittle thereby reducing the possibility of deformation before failure. The present work is an effort to evaluate the shear and impact behaviour of RPC due to varying proportions of fibre content in the mix. The results showed marked improvement of strength as well as the crack behaviour of the cubes when subjected to shear loading with increase in the load for first cracking.
