Abstract

The term reactive powder concrete (RPC) has been used to describe a fibre reinforced , superplasticized, silica fume- cement mixture with very low water-cement ratio, characterized by the presence of very fine quartz sand (0.15-0.4mm) instead of ordinary aggregate. Fibres are incorporated in RPC in order to enhance the fracture properties of the composite material. In this investigation modified RPC with crushed graded natural aggregate (maximum size 12.5mm) has been produced. High compressive strength of 150 MPa can be achieved by using crushed coarse aggregate; this result is in contrast with the model proposed to relate the high compressive strength level of RPC to the absence of coarse aggregate. Modified RPC reinforced with different types (crimped and hooked) and volume fractions (0%, 0.5%, and 1%) of steel fibres has a good performance in terms of high strength (Compressive strength, splitting tensile strength, modulus of rupture, impact strength) and static modulus of elasticity.

استخدم مصطلح خرسانة المساحيق الفعالة لوصف الخرسانة ذات الخليط الاسمنتي المسلح بالألياف والحاوي على الملدن المتفوق وأبخرة السليكا المكثفة وبنسبة ماء /اسمنت منخفضة جدا والتي تتميز باحتوائها على الرمل الناعم جدا (0.15-0.4 مم) كبديل عن الركام الخشن الاعتيادي و تضاف الألياف الى خرسانة المساحيق الفعالة وذلك لتحسين خواص المادة المركبة. تتضمن هذه الدراسة تحضير خرسانة مساحيق ناعمة معدلة تحتوي على ركام مكسر خشن طبيعي (بمقاس أقصى 12.5 مم). تم الحصول على خرسانة بمقاومة انضغاط عالية تصل الى 150 نيوتن/مم2 بإستخدام الركام الخشن المكسر وهذه النتيجة تناقض الموديل المقترح الذي يبين بأن مقاومة الانضغاط العالية لخرسانة المساحيق الفعالة تعود الى عدم وجود الركام الخشن في الخليط الخرساني. أظهرت النتائج بأن خرسانة المساحيق الفعالة المعدلة المسلحة بأنواع مختلفة ( مجعد و معقوف) ونسب حجمية مختلفة (0%, 0.5% , 1%) من الألياف الفولاذية لها أداء جيد من ناحية المقاومة العالية (مقاومة الانضغاط, مقاومة الشد الانشطاري, معاير الكسر, مقاومة الصدمة) ومعامل المرونة الستاتيكي.

Abstract

Slurry Infiltrated fiber Concrete (SIFCON) is a relatively new high performance material and can be considered as a special type of Fiber Reinforced Concrete (FRC) with high fiber content. The matrix consists of flowing mortar or cement slurry which must infiltrate properly through the fiber network placed in molds. SIFCON possessing excellent mechanical properties coupled with large ductility and toughness values. SIFCON has found application in area where high ductility and energy absorption are needed especially in seismic-resistant reinforced concrete frames and in structure under abnormal or explosive loads. Other successful applications include pavement overlays, repair of prestressed beams and repair of structural reinforced concrete element.The main aim of this study is to determine the effect of hooked ended steel fiber content and mineral admixture replacement silica fume (SF) on strength and deformation characteristics of SIFCON specimens under flexural loading. Three volume fraction of steel fiber (6, 8.5, and 11) % were used in this investigation .The percentage of SF replacement was (10%), by weight of cement in SIFCON slurry. Both the flexural strength and toughness characteristic were carried out by testing specimens of 100*100*400 mm at the age of 7and 28 days. The results obtained from these tests were compared with those carried out on conventional fiber reinforced mortar (FRM) with 2% fiber content, as control specimens. The test results show superior characteristics of SIFCON ,as compared with normal FRM ,which were affected in positive manner by using cementitiouse materials (SF) as a partial replacement by weight of cement, and with increasing the volume fraction of steel fiber. The flexural strength and toughness value up to (28.08 MPa ) and (159 N.mm),respectively were obtained at age of 28 days.
