Development of cement-based composites with hybrid fiber reinforcement for reinforcing concrete structures under impact load

A3 Composites with hybrid fiber reinforcement© Institute of Construction Materials

Tensile behavior of TRC without and with short fibers

The project aims to elaborate a holistic material concept for such composites to develop suitable matrices and to describe and adapt the composite behavior.

Specifically, the project deals with the development of hybrid concrete from textile reinforcement and ductile short fibers, the investigation of the influence of artificial defects or inclusions as well as the structure of matrix and reinforcement on fiber activation and energy dissipation. The material concept is to be based on a model description of the strength, deformation and fracture behavior of concretes with hybrid reinforcement.
