Strength of reinforced concrete beams of high-performance concrete and fiber reinforced concrete
The strength of reinforced concrete beams made of high-performance concrete and fiber reinforced concrete was evaluated in a pure-bending test. The efficiency of using straight steel fiber in bending structures was evaluated. The fracture pattern of models was described. The results of measuring the vertical displacement and crack width are provided and compared to the rated values. The diagrams of stresses and deformation in reinforcement and concrete of models are presented, and their specific features are noted. The current methods to evaluate reinforced concrete bending structures made of high-performance concrete were evaluated for Groups 1 and 2 limit states. Results were obtained for numerical studies of high-performance concrete. The results necessary to carry out numerical studies in the sphere of high-performance concrete have been obtained.
