EFFECT OF FIBRE ASPECT RATIO AND FIBRE VOLUME FRACTION ON THE EFFECTIVE FRACTURE ENERGY OF ULTRA-HIGH-PERFORMANCE FIBRE-REINFORCED CONCRETE

Radoslav Sovják, Petr Máca, Tomáš Imlauf

Abstract


This paper investigates the effective fracture energy of UHPFRC with various fibre volume fractions and various fibre aspect ratios. We have concluded that the effective fracture energy is dependent on both the fibre volume fraction and the fibre aspect ratio. In addition, we have found that both dependencies follow a linear trend.
