Abstract
Abstract The complete tension softening behaviour of short-fibre-reinforced cementitious composites which exhibit extensive matrix cracking is established by combining a fracture mechanical approach for bridged, discontinuous cracks with a statistical approach for a bridged, through-crack via consistent relationships for the bridging stress. These relationships account for adhesive and frictional bonding of fibres along a crack and are capable of accommodating the effects of fibre content and pre-peak cracking upon the fibre-binder interfacial properties. The combined approach is adapted to mortars based on a conventional high-strength cement binder and a dense, homogeneous cement-silica binder (DSP composite), and good agreement is obtained between the uniaxial tensile strength so calculated and that based on the rule of mixtures. Although the tension softening model needs many geometrical and mechanical properties of the mix constituents, as well as of the hydration products (e.g. interfaces) and the initial post-peak crack configuration, it provides a powerful tool for microstructural design of fibre-reinforced cementitious composites, particularly DSP mortars.

Abstract This paper presents a superposition approach for studying the influence of bridging forces upon the opening of multiple cracks in elastic solids under unidirectional tensile loading. The bridging forces may be purely elastic and proportional to the crack-opening displacements, but an elasto-plastic bridging law is more likely to represent reality in a short fibre-reinforced solid. The fibres debond from the elastic matrix at a certain critical crack-opening and thereafter provide a resi...

The phenomenon of stable crack growth in brittle materials is considered where stable crack growth is modeled as the formation of a bridge zone in the wake of a stably propagating main crack. The hypothesis that compressive zones surround and protect isolated ligaments under residual tension, which then leads to stable crack growth with attendant toughness enhancement, is incorporated into the bridge-zone formulation. Effects associated with debonding of ligaments on stable crack growth are expl...

The condition for progressive debonding with friction along the debonded interface is considered for the bridging fiber in the crack-wake of fiber-reinforced ceramic composites. The energy-based criterion is adopted in the present study to analyze the debond length, the crack-opening displacement, and the displacement of the composite due to interfacial debonding. The results are identical to the previous results obtained from a simple approach, in which interfacial debonding is assumed to occur...

Pull-out tests were carried out on deformed steel fibers embedded in cement-based matrices. Four matrices including plain cement paste, cement paste with 10% silica fume, cement paste with 10% high reactivity metakaolin (HRM), and cement paste with a combination of 5% silica fume and 5% HRM in the same mix were investigated. Based on the resulting bond-slip curves, HRM was found to be more effective in improving the pull-out performance than silica fume. However, when silica fume and HRM were co...

Abstract Designers of concrete mixes are often faced with competing requirements such as high strength and high ductility and have to rely on empirical and heuristic approaches. In the present study, this is overcome by incorporating the characteristic length 1ch and the brittleness number B into the design criteria and using well-established, mostly nonempirical, formulae relating the effective properties (elastic modulus, tensile strength, and fracture energy) to the microstructural parameters...

The stress-crack width relationship has been determined experimentally for concretes reinforced with two types of fibres, steel and polypropylene, of various fibre volume fractions. A micromechanics-based theoretical model is proposed which captures the essential features of the stress-crack width relationships at small crack widths (less than 0.3 mm).

From experiments using fiber reinforced densified small particles containing high volume fraction of fine and short steel fibers, it was found that the formation of multiple cracking which occurs between the point of first cracking and the peak load, was the main cause for the improvement in total strain capacity. This region, which is the inelastic strain region due to microcracking, is a unique property of high-performance fiber reinforced concrete (FRC). Multiple microcracking is a property o...

Abstract Steel fiber reinforced concrete (SFRC) with hooked-end steel fiber is extensively used in practical structures due to the excellent post-cracking tensile behavior. And the post-cracking tensile stress of SFRC is directly affected by the pullout behavior of the single fiber and the number of fibers that crossed the crack plane. This study presents a theoretical model to estimate the pullout response of the single hooked-end steel fiber, which considers the plastic deformation of the end-...

Abstract This study aims to establish a new constitutive model considering the fiber spacing and inclining effect for steel fiber reinforced concrete (SFRC) with high fiber content. To consider the influence of the fiber spacing, the fiber group effect factor is proposed for revising the reinforcement effect, and the critical fiber volume fraction is determined as 4.58%. Moreover, the fiber inclined effect factor is established by coupling the snubbing and matrix spalling effect factors, with th...

Many studies showed the interest of reinforcing composite materials with biofibers in the last decade. Producing more eco-friendly concretes, replacing synthetic fibers with natural and less expensive materials, is the main reason supporting these studies. Numerous plants have been investigated to reinforce concrete among which alfa has not been considered yet whilst it is made of cellulosic natural fibers with interesting stiffness and strength properties. In addition it is abundant and widely ...

Abstract A new constitutive model for fibre reinforced cementitious composites based on micromechanical solutions is proposed. The model employs a two-phase composite based on the Eshelby matrix-inclusion solution and the Mori鈥揟anaka homogenization scheme and also simulates directional microcracking. An exterior point Eshelby based criterion is employed to model crack-initiation in the matrix-inclusion interface. Microcrack surfaces are assumed to be rough and able to regain contact under both n...

A unique constitutive model for fibre reinforced concrete (FRC) is presented, which combines a number of mechanics-based sub models for the simulation of directional cracking, rough crack contact and the crack-bridging action of fibres. The model also contains a plasticity component to simulate compressive behaviour. The plasticity component employs a frictional hardening/softening function which considers the variation of compressive strength and strain at peak stress with fibre content. Numeri...

In the present work, a numerical framework for the design of new multiscale fibre-reinforced cementitious composites is presented. This is accomplished by covering three different length scales, namely the micro-, meso- and macroscale. At the microscale (here defined as ~1聽mm), an enhanced fibre-reinforced lattice model is presented for the simulation of strain hardening cementitious composites. On the other hand, the analysis of fibre-reinforced concrete is performed at the mesoscale (~10聽mm) b...

Abstract The strength and toughness prediction models for fiber-reinforced concrete (FRC) typically assume the spatial distribution of fibers is uniform. However, non-uniform dispersion can greatly affect the FRC鈥檚 mechanical properties. Several techniques have been used in the past to quantify the distribution and orientation of steel fibers within concrete. For quantifying dispersion of synthetic fibers within concrete, a non-destructive technique using X-ray computed tomography (CT) combined ...

This study investigated the enhanced toughening characteristics of plastic fiberreinforced hot-mix asphalt (HMA) mixtures in laboratory and field tests. The toughening effects of plastic fiber-reinforced HMA mixtures were characterized using direct tensile loading tests. Adding a small quantity of plastic fibers to HMA was found to significantly increase the mixture鈥檚 fracture energy, which was calculated using the tensile force-displacement curves. The fracture energy model appeared to be gover...
