Experimental Investigation on SIFCON with Using Different Type Fibers

Authors(2) :-M. Vijayakumar, P. Dinesh Kumar

Improve the concrete toughness and reduce the amount of defects by adding a some fibers to the concrete for this situation SIFCON type concrete is preferred SIFCON is not having coarse aggregate only have cement and sand or any cementitious material. The main objective of this paper deals with the coarse aggregate not used because of environment safe and saving building materials to future generation. Slurry-infiltrated fibrous concrete (SIFCON) gives the more strength compare to conventional and fiber reinforced concrete (FRC). This type of concrete gives the more ductility, earthquake resistant and tensile strength of concrete has higher strength. SIFCON consist the straight steel fiber, glass fiber, cement, fine aggregate, fly ash and the volume of fiber fraction of steel fiber is only varying to find the strength properties of SIFCON. Abrasion test result gives the lesser wear and tear effect. Aspect ratio of steel fiber is 75 kept in different mixes and it influences the strength of concrete as well as results compared to M30 conventional concrete.
