High Performance Fiber Reinforced Cement Composites

Antoine E. Naaman Department of Civil and Environmental EngineeringUniversity of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI, 48109-2125, U. S.A. 3.1 Introduction Fiber reinforced cement based composites have made striking advances and gained enormous momentum in recent years. This is due in particular to several developments involving the matrix, the fiber, the fiber-matrix interface, the composite production process, […]

Application of SCC

Numerous applications of SCC are successfully carried out in the construction industry throughout the world in the past decade. High — rise commercial and industrial buildings, precast products, bridges, highway pavements etc. are some of the common applications of SCC. Precast prestressed concrete I-beams are used extensively as the primary superstructure elements in Texas highway […]

Guidelines and specifications for SCC

Since its 1989 introduction in Japan, self-consolidating concrete (SCC) has been used worldwide for precast and cast-in-place applications. In 1998, Japan published guidelines for the design, testing and use of SCC [138]. Europe and China published similar guidelines in 2005 [141,171]. In US, SCC is being increasingly used during the past years. Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute […]

Performance specifications for HPC

During the past decade, many States developed specifications and guidelines for the raw materials, mixing, placement, curing and performance of HPC based on applications of project [84,167,168, 169]. In November 1999, FHWA awarded a three-year HPC pooled — fund study entitled “Compilation and Evaluation of Results from High Performance Concrete Bridge Projects”. The project collects […]
