Effects of mixing procedure upon uniformity of fiber reinforced concrete

Abstract

"This thesis describes the effects of several methods of introducing wire fibres into a concrete mix upon the uniformity of wire fibre reinforced concrete. Various mechanical and manual methods of introducing the fibres were used and comparisons of the methods were based upon variability in splitting tensile strength and the quantitative distribution of the fibres as determined by visual inspection of sawed cylinders. Test results show that the tensile strength of concrete is increased appreciably by the inclusion of steel wire fibres in the mix and the uniformity of strength is similar to that of unreinforced concrete. The methods of introducing the wire fibre proved to have little effect upon the uniformity of the reinforced concrete"--Abstract, page ii.
