Abstract


  • This paper reports the results of an experimental investigation on the behaviour of High

    Strength Concrete (HSC) reinforced with different types of steel fibre (copper-coated micro steel

    fibres, deformed macro steel fibre and hybrid steel fibre). A total of 40 cylindrical specimens

    with 100 mm diameter and 200 mm height were cast and tested for compressive and split

    tensile strengths. Three groups of steel fibre reinforced HSC specimens were prepared. The first

    group included 2, 3, and 4% by volume of copper-coated micro (CM) steel fibre; the second

    group included 1, 2 and 3% by volume of deformed macro (DM) steel fibre; and the third group

    included 1.5% (1% CM + 0.5% DM), 2.5% (1.5% CM + 1% DM), and 3.5% (2% CM + 1.5% DM) by

    volume of hybrid (H) steel fibre. Plain HSC specimens without steel fibre were also prepared.

    The experimental results showed higher improvements in the compressive and split tensile

    strengths of the HSC with the inclusion of 3, 2, and 2.5% by volume of CM, DM and H steel fibres,

    respectively, compared to the plain HSC.
