Strength and Behaviour of Fibrous High-Strength Concrete columns

Abstract

The behaviour of high-strength fiber reinforced concrete columns was observed with a testing program of 7 columns, loaded eccentrically. The theory was analyzed by modifying the stress block diagram of concrete.The experimental results show that using high-strength fiber reinforced concrete with fiber volume fraction of 1.0%, increased the column ultimate capacity up to 40% in addition to increasing its ductility and toughness, significantly.The proposed theoretical analysis gave a good estimation of experimental results.
