Antonio Conforti. 25th Cycle of the PhD Course in. ABSTRACT. Fiber reinforced concrete (FRC) is a composite material made by adding discrete fibers to concrete. The overall employment of FRC in building structures has been rather limited. This has been primarily due to a still narrow experimental research (especially at full-scale level) and consequently, to the lack of design previsions in.

Ribbed reinforcement is described as “high bond” in Eurocode 2 (EC2) and within the code serviceability checks make no allowance for variations in either the ductility or bond characteristics of these bars. In this work, this matter is explored, and the crack development and behaviour of concrete beams reinforced with various types of ribbed steel bar are investigated, using both numerical.

Fire Behaviour of Self-Prestressed Concrete Slabs Reinforced with Carbon Fibre Rein- forced Polymer Tendons Novel precast concrete elements have been developed utilizing high-strength, self- consolidating concrete (fire resistant or expanding SCC) in which prestress is introduced by high-strength and modulus, lightweight, and non-corroding carbon fibre reinforced polymer tendons (UHM CFRP.
High-performance concretes such as high-strength concrete (HSC) or lightweight aggregate concrete (LWAC) are generally used to reduce member sizes and self-weight, and to optimize the construction of reinforced concrete structures. The bond between the aggregate particles and the cement paste can be strong enough in HSC and LWAC to cause the aggregate to fracture at cracks, which in turn.
