Abstract

This paper investigates the possibility of combining steel fibers with different weight percentages along with their functions in increasing compressive strength, indirect tensile strength and bending strength. It`s been considered an important economic issue for a long time the ability to service and increase the load-bearing capacity of structural materials. Concrete as a widely used structural material is widely used today. Despite its remarkable properties including high ductility, high durability, longevity, availability and low cost, concrete is a brittle material and performs extremely poor under flexural and tensile loads. In general, the breakdown and destruction of concrete is strongly dependent on the formation of cracks and micro-cracks. As the loading increases, the micro-cracks interconnect and form cracks. In order to address this problem and to create homogeneous conditions, a series of thin filaments has been used throughout the concrete in recent decades; They are called fibers. Steel fiber is one of the most commonly used fibers in concrete. In this study, the compressive strength of concrete was investigated which in some specimens reinforced with steel and containing pozzolanic materials, the compressive strength of control samples increased with the use of fiber etc. In the present study, the flexural and tensile strength of steel fiber reinforced specimens were investigated. According to the results, flexural strength increases with increase in steel fibers. The designs contain 1%, 1.5% and 2% of the Dramix hooked steel fibers used in the research. By reinforcing the specimens with steel fibers, the behaviour of tensile concrete is much more flexible than that of non-steel specimens.
