Self–Compacting Concrete (SCC), Carbon Fiber, Mechanical Properties


The objective of present research is to design of SCC and to investigate the effect of inclusion of chopped basalt fiber, glass fiber & carbon fiber on fresh properties and hardened properties of SCC. Fresh properties comprise flow ability, passing ability, and viscosity related segregation resistance. Hardened properties to be studied are compressive strength, splitting tensile strength, flexural strength. Fiber reinforced concrete (FRC) is widely practiced with high ductility and sufficient durability. Fiber-reinforced self-compacting concrete uses the flow ability of concrete in fresh state to improve fiber orientation and in due course enhancing toughness and energy absorption capacity. In the past few years there has been a boost in the development of concretes with different types of fibers added to it. In the present work the mechanical properties of a self-compacting concrete with chopped Basalt, glass & Carbon fiber of length 12mm, added in various proportions will be studied in fresh and hardened state.
