Steel Fiber Reinforced Concrete Book Excerpt:

This book discusses design aspects of steel fiber-reinforced concrete (SFRC) members, including the behavior of the SFRC and its modeling. It also examines the effect of various parameters governing the response of SFRC members in detail. Unlike other publications available in the form of guidelines, which mainly describe design methods based on experimental results, it describes the basic concepts and principles of designing structural members using SFRC as a structural material, predominantly subjected to flexure and shear. Although applications to special structures, such as bridges, retaining walls, tanks and silos are not specifically covered, the fundamental design concepts remain the same and can easily be extended to these elements. It introduces the principles and related theories for predicting the role of steel fibers in reinforcing concrete members concisely and logically, and presents various material models to predict the response of SFRC members in detail. These are then gradually extended to develop an analytical flexural model for the analysis and design of SFRC members. The lack of such a discussion is a major hindrance to the adoption of SFRC as a structural material in routine design practice. This book helps users appraise the role of fiber as reinforcement in concrete members used alone and/or along with conventional rebars. Applications to singly and doubly reinforced beams and slabs are illustrated with examples, using both SFRC and conventional reinforced concrete as a structural material. The influence of the addition of steel fibers on various mechanical properties of the SFRC members is discussed in detail, which is invaluable in helping designers and engineers create optimum designs. Lastly, it describes the generally accepted methods for specifying the steel fibers at the site along with the SFRC mixing methods, storage and transport and explains in detail methods to validate the adopted design. This book is useful to practicing engineers, researchers, and students.

Advanced Composites Book Excerpt:

Engineering practice has revealed that innovative technologies’ structural applications require new design concepts related to developing materials with mechanical properties tailored for construction purposes. This would allow the efficient use of engineering materials. The efficiency can be understood in a simplified and heuristic manner as the optimization of performance and the proper combination of structural components, leading to the consumption of the least amount of natural resources. The solution to the eco-optimization problem, based on the adequate characterization of the materials, will enable implementing environmentally friendly engineering principles when the efficient use of advanced materials guarantees the required structural safety. Identifying fundamental relationships between the structure of advanced composites and their physical properties is the focus of this book. The collected articles explore the development of sustainable composites with valorized manufacturability corresponding to Industrial Revolution 4.0 ideology. The publications, amongst others, reveal that the application of nano-particles improves the mechanical performance of composite materials; heat-resistant aluminium composites ensure the safety of overhead power transmission lines; chemical additives can detect the impact of temperature on concrete structures. This book demonstrates that construction materials’ choice has considerable room for improvement from a scientific viewpoint, following heuristic approaches.

Construction Materials Book Excerpt:

Construction Materials is a comprehensive textbook covering all raw materials and products related to the construction processes, and not only those applied to building structures. The book is organized to help readers achieve competent knowledge about construction materials. At the beginning of the book the author offers the general concepts, definitions, and standards adopted worldwide for these materials to be used along the book. The central part of the text covers the primary construction materials required to manufacture concrete and mortars, the most relevant construction materials in the last century. Expressly, concrete and mortar are treated in detail in dedicated chapters per component. In addition, the author addresses other relevant materials in construction such as ceramic materials, metals and alloys, bituminous materials, and geosynthetic materials. Finally, since the construction industry is one of the largest single waste producing sector in the world, the last chapter outlines the main types and characteristics of construction and demolition waste (e.g. recycled aggregates). The book appeals to students but also professionals interested in construction materials and construction and civil engineering.

Numerical Approach for Modeling Steel Fiber Reinforced Concrete Book Excerpt:

One alternative to overcome the main drawbacks of plain concrete in tension (its brittleness and weakness) is Steel Fiber Reinforced Concrete (SFRC), a technique introduced in the 70's, which consists of adding steel fibers into the concrete matrix. Due to the presence of the steel fibers into the concrete matrix, the residual strength and the energy dissipation of the material increase. Moreover, once a crack appears in the concrete, the steel fibers sew this fissure. The shape, the length and the slenderness of the fibers influence on the SFRC behavior. Moreover, the distribution and the orientation of the fibers into the concrete domain must be taken into account for characterizing the material. In order to characterize the behavior of SFRC, a numerical tool is needed. The aim is to simulate the most standard and common tests (direct and indirect tension tests, flexural test, double punch tes,¿) and more complex setups. This thesis proposes a numerical tool for modeling SFRC avoiding homogenized models (not accurate enough) and conformal meshes (too expensive). Therefore, the numerical tool accounts for the actual geometry of the fibers, discretized as 1D bars nonconformal with the concrete bulk mesh (2D or 3D domains). The two materials, corresponding to the concrete bulk and the fiber cloud, are defined independently, but coupled by imposing displacement compatibility. This compatibility is enforced following the ideas of the Immersed Boundary methods. Two different models are considered for modeling the concrete bulk (a continuous one and a discontinuous one). The parametric study of each model is done for only plain concrete, before the addition of the steel fibers. A phenomenological mesomodel is defined for modeling steel fibers, on the basis of the analytical expressions describing the pullout tests. This phenomenological mesomodel not only describes the behavior of the steel fibers, but also accounts for the concrete-fiber interaction behavior. For each fiber, its constitutive equation is defined depending on its shape (straight or hooked) and the angle between the fiber and the normal direction of the failure pattern. Both 2D and 3D examples are reproduced with the proposed numerical tool. The obtained results illustrate the presence of the steel fibers into the concrete matrix. The shape of the fiber influences of the SFRC behavior: the residual strength is higher for hooked fibers than for straight ones. Moreover, increasing the quantity of fibers means increasing the residual strength of the material. The obtained numerical results are compared to the experimental ones (under the same hypothesis). Therefore, the proposed numerical approach of SFRC is validated experimentally.

Experimental and Theoretical Investigations of Steel Fibrous Concrete Book Excerpt:

Concrete is still the most widely used construction material since it has the lowest ratio between cost and strength as compared to other available materials. However, it has two undesirable properties, namely: low tensile strength and large brittleness that cause the collapse to occur shortly after the formation of the first crack. To improve these two negative properties and to achieve a partial substitute of conventional reinforcement, an addition of short discontinuous randomly oriented steel fibres can be practiced among others. In spite of positive properties, fibrous concrete did not find such acknowledgment and application as usual concrete. There do not still exist consistent dimensioning rules due to the lack sufficient large-scale static and dynamic experiments taking into account the effect of the fibre orientation. The intention of the book is twofold: first to summarize the most important mechanical and physical properties of steel-fibre-added concrete and reinforced concrete on the basis of numerous experiments described in the scientific literature, and second to describe a quasi-static fracture process at meso-scale both in plain concrete and fibrous concrete using a novel discrete lattice model. In 2D and 3D simulations of fibrous concrete specimens under uniaxial tension, the effect of the fibre volume, fibre distribution, fibre orientation, fibre length, fibrous bond strength and specimen size on both the stress-strain curve and fracture process was carefully analyzed.

Application of Steel Fiber Reinforced Concrete to Buried Structures Book Excerpt:

Attributes associated with the addition of steel fibers may have significant effects for the unique structural mechanism of large buried concrete structures such as culverts and bridges. CANDE, software developed under the sponsorship of FHWA in 1976, is recognized as the primary design and analysis tool for buried structures in the United States. Although CANDE models the behavior of reinforced concrete, it does not currently include an option for modeling steel fiber reinforced concrete (SFRC). The reported research focuses on the development of a new material type for CANDE that includes the effects of steel fibers in the concrete. An experimental and analytical approach was used to modify the CANDE finite element program and test the accuracy of the model. The research outcome is new input options to model the behavior of SFRC in the CANDE program needed to accurately predict the structural capabilities of SFRC buried structures.

On Shear Behavior of Structural Elements Made of Steel Fiber Reinforced Concrete Book Excerpt:

This book sheds light on the shear behavior of Fiber Reinforced Concrete (FRC) elements, presenting a thorough analysis of the most important studies in the field and highlighting their shortcomings and issues that have been neglected to date. Instead of proposing a new formula, which would add to an already long list, it instead focuses on existing design codes. Based on a comparison of experimental tests, it provides a thorough analysis of these codes, describing both their reliability and weaknesses. Among other issues, the book addresses the influence of flange size on shear, and the possible inclusion of the flange factor in design formulas. Moreover, it reports in detail on tests performed on beams made of concrete of different compressive strengths, and on fiber reinforcements to study the influence on shear, including size effects. Lastly, the book presents a thorough analysis of FRC hollow core slabs. In fact, although this is an area of great interest in the current research landscape, it remains largely unexplored due to the difficulties encountered in attempting to fit transverse reinforcement in these elements.
