Time-dependant behaviour of engineered cement-based composites
(Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2007-03)
ECC (Engineered Cement-based Composites) is a type of HPC (High Performance Concrete) that was engineered to overcome the weaknesses of ordinary concrete. It shows high ductility as it can resist the full tensile load ...
Time-dependent Behaviour of Cracked Steel Fibre Reinforced Concrete: from Single Fibre Level to Macroscopic Level
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2016-03)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The addition of steel fibres to a concrete matrix is known to improve the material’s post crack mechanical behaviour under short term loading conditions. However, limited information is available on the ...
Steel fibre-reinforced concrete: multi-scale characterisation towards numerical modelling
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2017-12)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: In recent years, Steel Fibre-Reinforced Concrete (SFRC) applications have increased in quantity and variety, due to its potential to partially or totally replace conventional reinforcement (rebar or welded ...
