Concrete Mix Design - The Best Concrete Mix - The Concrete

After all these fancy calculations, the bottom line is that concrete is still designed by experience with previous mixes or by making trial batches in a lab and testing the concrete. Nothing beats experience with a mix. Many decorative contractors will have 4 or 5 mixes that they use for different applications or weather conditions.

High-performance fiber-reinforced cementitious composites

High-performance fiber-reinforced cementitious composites (HPFRCCs) are a group of fiber-reinforced cement-based composites which possess the unique ability to flex and self-strengthen before fracturing. This particular class of concrete was developed with the goal of solving the structural problems inherent with today's typical concrete, such as its tendency to fail in a brittle manner

SHEAR STRENTHS OF PRESTRESSED FIBER REINFORCED

Reinforced concrete is the most common type of concrete in the United States and throughout the world. Traditional reinforcement uses internal steel rebars around and to which the concrete bonds during the curing process. Over the past two decades, however, Fiber Reinforced Concrete (FRC) has gained in prominence, especially in bridge construction.

State-of-the-Art Report on Fiber-Reinforced Lightweight

The fiber-reinforced concrete mixes were less workable than mixtures without fibers. The V-funnel test results for plain concrete ranged from 15 to 20 seconds and 35 to 120 seconds for the fiber concrete. The fiber-reinforced concrete mixes with plain fibers show the best compatibility followed by mix with paddle fibers.
