Abstract:

The study investigates the effects of destructive impulsive loads on concrete made with steel fiber reinforcement. Analysis of the data led to the following conclusions 1 The impulsive loading does not cause the sudden failure in the beams with fiber reinforced concrete that is observed in the case of conventional concrete beams. 2 The internal resisting moment is significantly greater in the case of beams made with fiber reinforced concrete. 3 Failure of the compressive zone in beams with fiber reinforced concrete is not sudden but is preceded by extensive deformation. 4 The increased tensile strength of fiber reinforced concrete permits its use without special shear reinforcement.
