Abstract

This paper presents a model based on parameterized uniaxial constitutive response for cement based composites in order to correlate the tensile and flexural experimental data. The model consists of a parabolic curve to describe the compression and a trilinear curve to describe the tension response. Two cutoff points for ultimate compressive strain and ultimate tensile strain can be used to terminate the calculation of the moment-curvature diagram. By using a conventional iterative strain compatibility analysis, the moment curvature diagram for homogenous material can be derived explicitly according to the level of applied tensile strain. Approaches are presented to express the moment and curvature response in dimensionless forms in order to eliminate the effect of specimen size and material properties. These moment curvature relationships can be used in the context of plastic analysis of structures to solve a variety of structural loading cases.

1. Introduction

Several approaches have been employed to enhance tension capacity, increased fracture toughness, and minimize crack width of cement based materials. The techniques include use of continuous fiber systems or utilization of a much higher volume fraction than standard fiber reinforced concrete (FRC). The most traditional form of continuous fiber cement composites are the ferrocement products. In contrast to thin section composites reinforced with randomly distributed short fibers, ferrocement [1] utilizes small wire mesh as a main reinforcement and mortar as the matrix. Small scales of ingredients, reinforcement and sand, minimize the flaw sizes in material; consequently, leading to the increase in overall strength. Alternatives to steel, other materials such as polypropylene (PP) [2], asbestos, and glass have also been shown to improve the tension capacity and

In order to approximate ferrocement as homogenized material. Tension response of concrete was modeled by a linear and power decay functions while the compression response was described by a parabolic curve: ⎧ε t Et 0 ⎪ σ t = ⎨f t − αε tn ⎪0 ⎩ for ε t ≤ ε t0 for ε t0 < ε t ≤ ε tu for ε t > ε tu (1.

While it is possible to develop an empirical material model for each individual system using unique compression and tension behaviors. “Correlation Of Tensile And Flexural Behavior Of Fiber Reinforced Cement Composites. a case study was conducted to study the effect of number of layers and reinforcement positions for typical fiber contents (1% . The details of the section and reinforcement are shown in Fig. Thailand. 2006. Case study on number of layers and reinforcement positions A typical reinforced concrete beam section 100x100 mm was used to study the parameters affecting homogenization. Homogenization concepts are routinely used in order to represent a uniform response of a composite material. 2. slurry infiltrated mat concrete (SIMCON) [4]. In order to develop a material model based on a smeared reinforcement concept. Homogenization concept The proposed material model is based on nonlinear uniaxial response of composites observed in experiments. While it is technically feasible but computationally intensive to model the different phases of steel and paste as independent components. and Mobasher. the homogenization approach uses constitutive tensile and compressive response of the combined fibers and matrix. [5] and pultruded and cast textile reinforced composite (TRC) materials which exhibit mechanisms of distributed cracking and strain hardening behaviors [6][7] and [8]. B. How many layers of reinforcement are needed for the ferrocement to behave like a homogenized material and how the positioning of the reinforcement affects the moment curvature diagram? To answer these questions. Examples of the range of new products developed include materials such as slurry infiltrated concrete (SIFCON) [3]. 2.5%).Soranakom.” Ferro8. 3.a) . ductility. A ferrocement composite that is symmetrically and uniformly reinforced with several layers of steel is considered. It would be ideal to develop theoretical formulations based on a uniform and unique set of parametric material models for design guides. it is preferable to evaluate a homogenized composite with nonlinear stress-strain response. The addition of these new materials to the already well developed range of ferrocement products requires a rethinking in the development of analytical procedures for design and analysis. proceedings of the 8th International Ferrocement and thin reinforced cement composites Conf. C. the task of developing a common base to rationally compare various competitive systems and their performances becomes difficult.. two questions arise. 1.
