Experimental Study on High Performance Concrete with Glass Fibre IJTSRD
In reviewing technology advances through the centuries, it is evident that material development plays a key role. Considerable efforts are still being made in every part of the world to develop new construction materials. In the construction industries, concrete technology is heading towards entirely new era by way of using glass fibre with high performance concrete. Strength and durability are the two major factors to be considered in the design of structure subjected to static and dynamic loads. Characteristics of conventional concrete might not be entirely applicable to high strength concrete because of their difference in failure characteristics and engineering properties. HPC is multi-componential interactive construction material. High strength is not only the parameter that has to be looked in the design of structural element. There are various other parameter such as modulus of elasticity, bond strength, flexural strength, and splitting strength etc. that tend to change the mechanical properties and failure characteristics of hardened concrete, expressive in the form of deflections, ultimate load, formation of cracks and crack pattern etc. High performance concrete (HPC) is a specialized concrete designed to provide several benefits in the construction of concrete structures. The use of fibres in concrete has gained enormous popularity in the last decade. Studies have shown increasing evidence that the brittle behavior of HPC can be overcome by the addition of short Glass fibres of small diameter in the concrete mix. The present study aims to investigate the integration of Glass fibers with HPC of a designed mix of M60 grade of concrete. The influence of the cementations material dosage, cementultra-fine ratio, percentage of fibers, and the mixing procedures on the mechanical properties of concrete was studied by preparing several concrete mixes. Glass fibre specifically designed for use with concrete composites as admixture. Three different concentrations such as 0.75%, 1% and 1.25% of Glass Fibre by weight of cement were used. Glass fibre first dispersed in dry mix and surfactant using an ultrasonic mixer as per state-of-the-art techniques and then combined with water and high performance concrete. The various mechanical properties like Compressive, Flexural and Split tensile strength can be improved with the addition of low concentrations of Glenium ACE 30 in high performance fiber reinforced concrete.
