Abstract

The potential use of Steel Fiber Reinforced Concrete (SFRC) is to improve the structural strength and reduce steel reinforcements requirements. Here blast furnace slag (GGBS) has been used as a supplementary material along with the cement. It helps in increasing the durability and strength of the concrete. This study mainly deals with the compressive strength of high strength concrete reinforced with metallic (steel) fibres based upon different curing methods like normal curing, steam curing and hot air oven curing. Addition of HRWR¶ super plasticizer as it allows the reduction of the water to cement ratio as well as production of high performance concrete. The study mainly emphasis upon the best combination of aggregates, steel fibres and also best curing methods. The investigation results suggests that the mix SF 13 having CA 40% & Mortar 60% with the addition of 60 mm steel fibre by 60% and 35 mm steel fibre by 40% has shown the maximum value in different curing methods.
