Abstract

Plain concrete is a brittle material. Ductility or higher energy absorption can be achieved by reinforcing the concrete with steel fibers. Due to the ability to arrest cracks, steel fiber reinforced concrete (SFRC) possess increased tensile strength, both at first crack load and at ultimate load, particularly under flexural loading, thus increasing energy absorption capacity of the concrete. An attempt has been made to evaluate the toughness properties of steel fiber reinforced concrete, for varied volume fractions of fibers with three fiber varieties, each fiber type having different aspect ratio and tensile strengths. For the study M30 grade of concrete was used confirming to IS: 456-2000. Tests were conducted according to ASTM C 1609/C 1609M
