An Experimental Study on Increasing Strength, and Durability of Concrete by Using Fiber Reinforced Polymer Composites Such as Steel Fiber Elements, Glass Fiber Elements and Textile Reinforcement
Keywords:fiber reinforced concrete, steel fiber, glass fiber elements, textile reinforced concrete, strength and durability studies, advantage of using fiber reinforced concrete, outcome of adding fibers to concrete
Concrete elements are one of the most significant integral parts of any embedded construction work. As the constituents for preparation of concrete, is usually easily available, along with the economically beneficial aspect, concrete has been extensively in use for years now. Over time, the advanced construction has developed a tendency of working on escalating the strength, durability of concrete to fulfill the stipulation of contemporary structural requirements. Adding fibers to concrete results in assorted properties to the concrete, significantly contrasting from conventional concrete, depending upon the ‘volume of fraction’ of fibers added to it and its variety or orientation. The main motive of this study is to analyze the outcome of adding fibers (Glass fibers, textile fibers, and Steel fuse elements) to the concrete and collate the strength, durability factors respectively due to the experimental addition.
