TO TESTING OF STEEL FIBRE REINFORCED CONCRETE AT ELEVATED TEMPERATURE
AbstractAddition of steel fibres improves properties of concrete. The lack of information considering tensile and post cracking behaviour of SFRC at elevated temperatures is an obstacle on the wide use of this composite material. This work presents an experimental study of steel fibre reinforced concrete subjected to high temperature. Compressive strength, split tensile strength and ultimate bending strength were evaluated. The specimens were heated by ceramic heaters and then repacked for testing.
