Effect of Load Transfer Section to Toughness for Steel Fiber-Reinforced Concrete
AbstractThis study analyzed the correlation between the load transfer properties and the overall toughness in the flexural behavior of steel fiber-reinforced concrete after concrete matrix cracking. Beam specimens with identical aspect ratios were made with three different types of steel fiber, each of which had different properties, and were used for the flexural test. The load displacement graph from the test was divided into sections by behavioral properties, and the regression model by mix was analyzed to extract the correlation between the load transfer section (concrete-fiber) and the overall toughness. The analysis results showed three types of load displacement curve based on the fiber type and fiber content, and confirmed that the load reduction section towards fiber after concrete cracking and the slope and area of the load reascension section had a huge impact on the overall toughness. The regression model of the whole toughness (Tb) was then acquired by proposing the resulting correlation as the load transfer factor (LTF). View Full-Text
