The Effect of Addition of Fiber Reinforcement on Fire Resistant Composite Concrete Material

Bassam Z. Mahasneh

Abstract:
This study presents the benefits gained from using Fiber Reinforced Polymers on concrete technology. Fire resistance of Polymeric Fiber Reinforced Concrete (PFRC) is presented in this study. The effect of fire on compressive strength, tensile strength and pullout is investigated. Results from several cylinder specimens having different aspect ratios as well as cube specimens are also investigated. These results indicated that PFRC strength is controlled by the composite action of both fiber and concrete. This Polymeric fiber shows an increase in the ductility, fire resistance and enhancement of the composite material properties. This study provides a good understanding of the behavior of fiber polymers on composite concrete properties and the effect of polymeric reinforced polymer on unprotected concrete.
