    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    The objective of this research was to evaluate the mechanical response of Steel Fibre Reinforced Concrete (SFRC) with high anisotropy (produced by spraying). The results of an experimental program conducted with the ...
  • Multidirectional double punch test to assess the post-cracking behaviour of FRC 

    Pujadas Álvarez, Pablo; Blanco Álvarez, Ana; Pialarissi Cavalaro, Sergio Henrique; Fuente Antequera, Albert de la; Aguado de Cea, Antonio (2016)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    Several authors have shown the direct influence of the orientation of the fibres on the residual strength of the material. From a design-oriented perspective, the anisotropy due to the dispersion and orientation of fibres ...
