An Experimental Investigation on Basalt Fibre Reinforced Concrete with Acrylic Polymer

T. N. Janbandhu | V. M. Bogar | Dr. Y. M. Ghugal


Abstract: This paper presents an experimental investigation on polymer modified basalt fibre reinforced concrete. The compressive strength, flexure strength, shear strength and split tensile strength are considered for investigation. The basalt fibre content varies from 1 % to 5 % at the interval of 1 % by weight of cement. The amount of acrylic polymer introduced in each mix is 10 % by weight of cement. Standard specimens for cubes, beams, push-off and cylinder were cast, respectively, for compression, flexure, direct shear and split tensile strengths. This study explores the behaviour of polymer modified fibre reinforced concrete (PMFRC) to assess its potential as a superior construction material. The results show improved strength performance with the addition of basalt fibbers and the acrylic polymer.
