Dependence of Impact Resistance of Steel Fiber Reinforced Concrete on Aggregate Origin

Title variants
Languages of publication
In this study, the effect of aggregate origin on impact resistance of steel fiber reinforced concrete was investigated. Using gravel-sized limestone, basalt and natural aggregates of 20 mm of maximum size, normal and steel fiber reinforced concretes were produced. Water/cement ratio and cement dosage of concrete mixtures were 0.5 and 400 kg/m³, respectively. It should be noted that superplasticizer and steel fibers were used in concrete production. Hooked-end bundled steel fibers with l/d ratio of 65 and 1.0% fiber volume were used. After 28 days standard curing, compressive strength, split tensile strength and ultrasonic pulse velocity tests were performed on 150 × 150 × 150 mm³ cube specimens. Additionally, impact resistances of concrete specimens were determined using impact test apparatus described in ACI Committee 544. Φ150 × 300 mm³ cylinders were prepared for impact resistance tests. After 28 days curing, these specimens were cut into Φ150 × 64 mm³ dimension. Impact resistance tests were performed on these specimens. Experimental results were evaluated in terms of steel fiber presence and aggregate origin.
