Improving the workability and rheological properties of Engineered Cementitious Composites using factorial experimental design
In the development of Engineered Cementitious Composites (ECC), micromechanics-based design theory is adopted to properly select the matrix constituents, fiber, and fiber-matrix interface properties to exhibit strain ...
Use of spent foundry sand and fly ash for the development of green self-consolidating concrete
In the United States alone, the foundry industry discards up to 10 million tons of sand each year, offering up a plentiful potential resource to replace sand in concrete products. However, because the use of spent foundry ...
Effect of sustained flexural loading on self-healing of engineered cementitious composites
(Japan Concrete Institute, 2013-05)
This paper aims to clarify the effects of sustained flexural loading on the self-healing behavior of Engineered Cementitious Composites (ECC). Prismatic specimens of ECC mixtures with two different levels of Class-F fly ...
Permeability properties of self-consolidating concrete containing various supplementary cementitious materials
In this study, permeability properties of 17 self-consolidating concrete (SCC) mixtures containing various supplementary cementitious materials (SCM) were investigated by different experimental approaches. The effects of ...
Influence of thixotropy determined by different test methods on formwork pressure of self-consolidating concrete
In this experimental study, the influence of thixotropy determined by different test methods on the formwork pressure of self-consolidating concrete (SCC) with varying compositions was investigated. In order to determine ...
Development of a proper mix-design for impact loading of deflection hardening hybrid fiber reinforced concrete
This study aims to develop a low-cost Hybrid Fiber Reinforced Concrete (HyFRC) that exhibits deflection hardening behavior under bending and has high energy absorption capacity under impact loading by determining proper ...
