This paper investigates the mechanical behaviour of FRC made with both Industrial and Recycled Steel Fibres recovered from waste tyres. Specimens of various mixtures, characterised by the same volume fraction of fibres, but different proportions of industrial and recycled reinforcement were tested both in compression and bending. The results highlighted a fairly negligible influence of fibres in terms of compressive strength, whereas a significant decay in the post-cracking behaviour was observed in specimens with higher fractions of recycled fibres. However, a significant enhancement in the bending response was observed with respect to the case of plain concrete, even for specimens reinforced by recycled fibres only.

Abstract

This paper investigates the mechanical behaviour of FRC made with both Industrial and Recycled Steel Fibres recovered from waste tyres. Specimens of various mixtures, characterised by the same volume fraction of fibres, but different proportions of industrial and recycled reinforcement were tested both in compression and bending. The results highlighted a fairly negligible influence of fibres in terms of compressive strength, whereas a significant decay in the post-cracking behaviour was observed in specimens with higher fractions of recycled fibres. However, a significant enhancement in the bending response was observed with respect to the case of plain concrete, even for specimens reinforced by recycled fibres only.
