Effect of basalt fibers on fracture energy and mechanical properties of HSC
Mehmet E. Arslan

 
Abstract     [Full Text]
    Fracture energy is one of the key parameters reveal cracking resistance and fracture toughness of concrete. The main purpose of this study is to determine fracture behavior, mechanical properties and microstructural analysis of high strength basalt fiber reinforced concrete (HSFRC). For this purpose, threepoint bending tests were performed on notched beams produced using HSFRCs with 12mm and 24mm fiber length and 1, 2 and 3 kg/m
 
Key Words
    basalt fiber, high strength concrete, mechanical properties, fracture energy, microstructure
