Abstract

The micromechanical response of interface between steel fibre and cement matrix was studied using high sensitivity Moire interferometry technique. Direct tension tests of continuous fibre reinforced composites, rather than the fibre pullout tests, were conducted to characterize interfacial properties by both stress approach and energy approach through a quantitative Moire fringe analysis. The interfacial constitutive relationship between shear stress and slip, as well as the interfacial fracture energy were determined from the experiments. The results were used for examining current knowledge on fibre-matrix interface in cement composites.
