Experimental Investigation on Effect of Strength of Concrete by using Alkali Resistance Cem-Fill type Glass Fibers
Ajmal Paktiawal, Dr Binod Kumar Singh, Yati Aggarwal
Plain concrete is poor in tensile strength but strong in compressive strength, and also possess a limited ductility property and low resistance to crack. In order to improve tensile strength, response to climate effect and as well as to be ductile member and play a significant role and show resistance to crack and punching shear. Hence, fibres are to be added in certain percentage in the mix of concrete to improve and impart the strain properties and as well as crack resistance, ductility property, flexural strength and toughness. Mainly the investigation studies and research have been done for the fibers which has been devoted to steel fibers. As the steel fibers are not showing resistance to corrosion especially when they exposed to environment. So, in the recent times, glass fibers have been introduced and is available, which are free from corrosion problem associated with steel fibers. Glass fiber reinforced concrete is more effective in resisting bending and punching shear. Fiber reinforced concrete is used for the construction of airport pavements to improve the properties of strength, toughness and as well as long term durabilities. The present research studies are made on various properties of glass fiber reinforced concrete by using AR-Glass cem-fill type fibers in concrete in various percentages (0.33 %, 0.67 % and 1 %). the present paper investigated on glass fibers reinforced concrete to study on the grade M50 strength properties like compressive strength, split tensile strength, flexural strength and durability properties like Acid and Sulphate attack on both ordinary and Glass Fiber Concrete at stipulated ages (7days, 28days & 56days). using alkali resistance AR cem-fill type glass fiber in the study. The present thesis would give much more beneficiary to the field of concrete technology towards development of concretes possessing very much enhanced and special durable properties. Based on the study, valuable advice will be given for concrete structures. M50 grade concrete, Glass fiber, PC based superplasticizer, strength properties.
