Industry experts from Twintec Middle East presented a variety of cutting-edge solutions for modern-day fibrous concrete
construction at an event hosted by the Bahrain British Business Forum (BBBF).
Cast from fibrous concrete
mixes, the Greenleaf-certified planks and panels are stain and water resistant, low maintenance and sealed with natural oil.
Tenders are invited for Ready mix concrete, dry sand/cement mix, flowable fill, fibrous concrete
reinforcing, water reducing admixture (accelerator).
Doherty, "Analysis of reinforced fibrous concrete
beams," Journal of the Structural Division, vol.
Polypropylene fibrous concrete
containing 50% copper slag exhibits an improvement in strength compared to concrete containing 30%-40% of copper slag with polypropylene fibres.
2005) examined, through experimental studies, the flexural behaviour of corbels made of plain or fibrous concrete
with steel bars.
In case of reinforced fibrous concrete
, friction between fibers and concrete matrix and fiber yielding also contribute importantly in energy dissipation.
Field Batching Sequences, ACI Journal: 504-505.
Response of non fibrous concrete
beams without shear reinforcement, with shear span to depth ratio (a/d) from one to four.
For each water--cementitious materials ratio (w/cm), one plain concrete (silica fume concrete) mix, and three fibrous concrete
mixes having fiber volume fractions ([V.
Roof tiles are also manufactured from fibrous concrete
and come in a variety of colors.
In reinforced fibrous concrete
, friction between fiber and matrix, yielding of fiber, breaking or pulling out of fibers from matrix are also additional mechanisms.
