Abstract

Self-compacted concrete (SCC) is a unique type of concrete that settles into the formwork and fills all of its corners without the use of compaction or vibration. Because SCC has a higher flowability, it becomes brittle and performs poorly under stress and bending. One of the most effective ways to increase the tensile and flexural performance of SCC is to include randomly distributed short and discontinuous fibers. In this regard, this experimental study is undertaken to investigate the effect of nylon fibers (NF) on the fresh and hardened properties of SCC. Two different lengths, 20 mm and 12 mm, were used, as well as five different volumetric percentages of NF, 0.1, 0.2, 0.3, 0.4, and 0.5 percent. The results demonstrated that adding NF to SCC had a minor effect on its fresh characteristics. However, the magnitude of the influence is not large enough to be considered a significant factor. According to EFNARC criteria, the fresh characteristics of whole mixtures are within the required range. With the addition of NF, the strength qualities improve. the extent of increment is greater for the longer length of NF. The optimum volumetric fraction of NF for producing high strength SCC was found as 0.5%. The fresh properties of complete combinations are within the required range, according to EFNARC guidelines. The strength properties enhance with the addition of NF. The length of NF has a significant impact on the amount of increment. The volumetric proportion of NF required to produce high-strength SCC was discovered to be 0.5 percent.
