Polypropylene Fibre-Reinforced Concrete - an overview ...

Polypropylene fiber reinforced concrete mixtures had a tensile strength of 3.4 MPa while the tensile strength of the steel fiber reinforced concrete series was 5.0 MPa (Li et al., 1993). According to the results presented in Fig. 6.14 , the shrinkage cracking performance of polypropylene fiber reinforced concrete (PFRC) slabs are greatly influenced by the shape of the σ – w curves and the ...

STRENGTH PROPERTIES OF POLYPROPYLENE FIBER REINFORCED CONCRETE

Two kinds of fiber that very often used in the concrete are: steel fiber and polypropylene fiber [2]. The evaporation of concrete surface water is a factor in creating the contract paste fracture in concrete which leads to the formation of tension stress since the concrete starts to strengthen [3]. Zeiml et al. [4] mentioned that using polypropylene fibers can improve spalling behavior of ...
