Abstract:

The self-compacting concrete (SCC) is the newest innovating category of high performance concrete. The shear behavior of Fiber Reinforced Self-Compacted Concrete (FRSCC) deep beams was investigated. The experimental program consisted of twelve simply supported beams tested up to failure under four-point load. The key parameters covered in this investigation were steel fibers ratios (0.0, 0.50, 0.75 & 1.00%) and the effective shear span to depth ratio; a/d that varied from 0.6 to 1.0. Also, the main flexure reinforcement ratio was variable (1.0, 1.60 and 2.20 percent). In addition, vertical and horizontal web reinforcement effect was investigated. The mid-span deflection, cracks, reinforcement and concrete strains of the tested beams were recorded and compared. Test results pointed out that the steel fibers enhanced the cracking load, ultimate capacity, displacement and energy absorption of the tested FRSCC deep beams. The utmost enhancement in the performance of deep beams was achieved with steel fibers content of 1.0% within the range of the test parameters. The enhancement in the ultimate capacity was 40%. The test results indicated that both vertical and horizontal web reinforcement are efficient in shear capacity enhancement of FRSCC deep beams. The ultimate shear capacity was increased by about 47% with increasing the longitudinal steel ratio from 1.0% to 2.2%. Maximum strain in the extreme compression fiber of concrete section was 0.0019 and achieved at specimen tested at a/d ratio of 0.6. A non-linear finite element analysis (NLFEA) model was constructed to simulate the shear behavior of tested beams, in terms of crack pattern and load deflection behavior. It can be concluded that a good agreement between the results was achieved. The ratio of the predicted to the experimental ultimate strength ranged between 0.98 and 1.04.experimental and numerical
