Effect of Recovered Fibers on the Behavior of Concrete in Tension


This study evaluates the performance of concrete under the effect of the addition of non-straight fibers recovered during the machining of steel parts and then studies the effect of the addition of corrugated fibers (chips) on their behavior in direct traction of the fiber concrete. In order to characterize the mechanical behavior and tearing of these fibers, three lengths of fibers were used (4 cm, 5 cm, and 6 cm); for each length we varied the percentage by volume (0.3%, 0.5%, 0.8%, 1%, and 1.2%). To make a comparative study, a second series of tests was carried out with control concrete (BT) without any fibers of the same composition. The results of the tests carried out indicate that the resistance and stiffness are significantly improved and that the fibers imparted significant ductility to the material compared to the control concrete. It was also observed that the percentage of fibers significantly influences the appearance of cracks. Moreover, with an increase in the percentage of fibers from 0.3% to 0.8%, the resistance increases, but beyond a content of 0.8%, the mechanical characteristics decrease.
