Self-compacting concrete, hybrid mix of steel fibers, flexural tensile strength
The paper presents an experimental study of self-compacting concrete (SCC) by considering steel and natural fibers as effective reinforcements in hybridization. The influence of combinations steel fibers and natural fibers with different lengths and cross-sectional shape on the compressive strength and flexural behavior of SCC was investigated. Hooked end steel fibers with an aspect ratio 60 and banana fiber with an aspect ratio of 100 as natural fiber is taken for combinations. Volume fraction of fibers considered are 1% of volume of concrete mix. Steel fibers added with percentage of 0.5, 0.6, 0.7, 0.8 and banana fibres added with percentage of 0.5, 0.4, 0.3, 0,2 by volume of concrete.
