Strength and Behavior of SFRSCC and SFRC Wall Panels under One-Way In-Plane Action
An experimental investigation was carried out to study the strength and behavior of steel fiber reinforced self compacting concrete (SFRSCC) and Steel Fiber Reinforced Concrete (SFRC) wall panels under one-way in-plane action. The volume fraction and aspect ratio of steel fibers used are 0.50% and 60 respectively. Influence of slenderness ratio and aspect ratio of wall panels on the ultimate load were studied. The load-deflection plots indicate that SFRSCC wall panels exhibit softening behavior which means that the wall panels behave in a more ductile manner than that of SFRC wall panels. A method was proposed to predict the ultimate strength of SFRSCC wall panels.
