Reinforced self-compacting concrete beams subject to static and dynamic loads

abstract
The phenomenon fatigue is well understood and documented in the literature for traditional concrete, whereas this is not so for self-compacting concrete. For this paper several reinforced concrete beams (0,15 x 0,20 x 2,40 m) with varying reinforcement ratios are subjected to static and dynamic loads until failure in a four point bending rig. Both self-compacting (SCC) and traditional concrete (TC), of equal strength, are delivered by a ready-mix concrete supplier. The imposed stress levels for the dynamic loading at different stress ratios are 0.80 fcc and 0.85 fcc. For this paper structural behaviour properties such as deflections, strains and crack propagation corresponding to both static load and fatigue load are registered. During and after collapse the failure mechanisms are observed and analyzed. The experimental results are presented and discussed in this paper. Analysis of the experimental results leads to the following main conclusions : (1) The mean crack width of self-compacting during loading is smaller compared to that of traditional concrete, but more cracks are observed. (2) Clearly different failure mechanisms have been observed between static and dynamic loading for the same type of beam. (3) Self-compacting concrete appears to have a somewhat lower shear resistance then traditional concrete during fatigue loading. (4) The difference in deflection between beams in SCC and TC with equal reinforcement configuration is rather small.
