Improving Concrete Properties with Fibers Addition C

  title={Improving Concrete Properties with Fibers Addition C},
  author={E. Mello and C. Ribellato and Eltayeb Mohamedelhassan},
This study investigated the improvement in concrete properties with addition of cellulose, steel, carbon and PET fibers. Each fiber was added at four percentages to the fresh concrete, which was moist-cured for 28-days and then tested for compressive, flexural and tensile strengths. Changes in strength and increases in cost were analyzed. Results showed that addition of cellulose caused a decrease between 9.8% and 16.4% in compressive strength. This range may be acceptable as cellulose fibers…
