Abstract

An experimental investigation of the behaviour of concrete beams reinforced with conventional steel bars and steel fibers and subjected to flexural loading is presented. An experimental program consisting of tests on steel fiber reinforced concrete (SFRC) beams with conventional reinforcement and reinforced concrete (RC) beams was conducted under flexural loading. SFRC beams include two types of beams containing steel fibers in two different volume fractions i.e. one percent and 1.5 percent. The cross sectional dimensions and span of beams were fixed same for all types of beams. The dimensions of the beams were 125mm x 150mm x11000mm.Tests on conventionally reinforced concrete beam beams showed enhanced properties compared to that of RC beams. The ultimate loads obtained in the experimental investigation were also compared with the theoretical loads for all types of beams specimens, containing steel fibers in different proportions, have been conducted to establish load ?deflection curves. The various parameters, such as, first crack load service load ultimate load, of beams with and without steel fibres have been carried out and a quantitative comparison was made on significant stages of loading.
