Brittle Matrix Composites 7 Excerpt :

The International Symposium in Brittle Matrix Composites October 13-15, 2003 covers a wide spectrum of topics including cement based composites, ceramic composites and brittle polymer matrix composites. In the papers various topics and issues are considered such as: analytical and numerical studies related to the design of composites, prediction of behaviour and verification of strength and stability, testing methods, manufacturing processes and repair, environmental effects and durability assessment. The present volume of 55 papers proves that there are still many problems in the field of brittle matrix composites deserving theoretical and experimental investigations and that new solutions to these problems are needed for practical application in civil engineering, industrial structures, machinery and other domains.

Brittle Matrix Composites Excerpt :

The main motivation for this work was the attempt to limit the rapid destruction of brittle high performance concrete UPC and, in consequence, to obtain SRCC (safe rope effect cement composite). In the high performance fiber reinforced cement composites HPFRC deflection and flexural strength are increased. The rope effect in HPFRC results in a highly deflected damaged specimen with multicracking effect and with post-peak load at bending exceeding that corresponding to the first crack, which enables to obtain cement composite with the ability to absorb additional energy after the appearance of the macrocrack. The SRCC paste and mortar were presented in the previous paper. This paper shows different effects of the strengthening of cement concrete with dispersed synthetic structural polypropylene fibers 19 and 54mm long. The possibility to control multicracking and the crack propagation process using the rope effect for SRCC composites, which eliminates the catastrophic process of the destruction of composite, was presented and a new possibility of the strengthening effects assessment was suggested.

In this work, the evaluation of the durability to wet-dry cycling exposure of cement composites reinforced with nanofibrillated cellulose comparing the results with composites reinforced with conventional cellulose fibres at the micro-scale level has been performed. For this purpose, cement mortar composites reinforced with cellulose fibres from conventional sisal pulp and cellulose nanofibres prepared by the application of a high intensity refining process have been prepared. The mechanical performance of the composites prepared was tested after 7 days of cure treatment and after 5 wet-dry cycles. The cement mortar composites reinforced with the nanofibrillated cellulose exhibited higher flexural strenght and flexural modulus but lower values of fracture energy than the ones reinforced with the conventional sisal fibres. No significant improvements of the durability were found for the composites prepared with nanofibrillated cellulose.

The paper presents results of tests on self-compacting mixtures with the addition of steel fibres (Steel Fibre Reinforced Self-Compacting Concrete). Four types of steel fibres at 3 levels of the volume ratio are considered. The results include studies on samples belonging to classes of slump flow SF, classes of viscosity T500, and rheological tests. The studies were based on application of two rheometers for rheological properties of concrete mixtures - BT2 Rheometer and Viskomat XL. Additionally, a study of compressive strength fcm,28 and flexural strength f was carried out on concrete SFRSCC. These studies have confirmed the possibility of using steel fibres in concrete SCC while maintaining the assumed technological parameters for concrete mixtures and, above all, their workability.

Damage Fracture and Fatigue of Ceramic Matrix Composites Excerpt :

This book focuses on the damage, fracture and fatigue of ceramic-matrix composites. It investigates tensile damage and fracture, fatigue hysteresis, and the properties of interfaces subjected to cyclic fatigue loading. Further, it predicts fatigue life at room and elevated temperatures using newly developed damage models and methods, and it analyzes and compares damage, fracture and fatigue behavior of different fiber performs: unidirectional, cross-ply, 2D and 2.5D woven. The developed models and methods can be used to predict the damage and lifetime of ceramic-matrix composites during applications on hot section components.Ceramic-matrix composites (CMCs) are high-temperature structural materials with the significant advantages of high specific strength, high specific modulus, high temperature resistance and good thermal stability, which play a crucial role in the development of high thrust weight ratio aero engines. The critical nature of the application of these advanced materials makes comprehensive characterization a necessity, and as such this book provides designers with essential information pertaining not only to the strength of the materials, but also to their fatigue and damage characteristics.

Brittle Matrix Composites Excerpt :

The results of research concerning flexural strength, work of fracture and compressive strength of basalt fibre reinforced cement mortars as well as basalt fibre resistance in alkaline environment are presented in the paper. Basalt fibres, 5mm and 12mm long, with the amount of 0.4kg/m3, 1kg/m3, 2kg/m3 were used as the reinforcement of 3, 7 and 28-day mortars. It was found that the addition of fibres caused the increase in flexural strength (up to 20%), the reduction in compressive strength (up to 15%) and the properties tested were determined by the length of fibres whereas the influence of the fibre content was insignificant. The examination of basalt fibre resistance in alkaline environment (10% sodium hydroxide solution at 60°C during 10 days) pointed out the chemical degradation of basalt fibres in the form of reduction of fibre diameter and formation of the deposit on the surface of fibre. The microscopic observations and ED XRF spectra did not confirm the presence of any polymer coating on the surface of fibres that could enable the effective anchorage (bond) of basalt fibres to the matrix and could protect fibres against the destruction in the alkaline environment of cement matrix.
