Abstract

To study the influence of steel fibers on the fatigue behavior of conventionally reinforced concrete structures, beams reinforced with three different volumes of reinforcing bars were tested in a constant amplitude fatigue loading. For each amount of conventional steel, three types of fibers were used. Addition of fibers to conventionally reinforced concrete beams increased the static ultimate bending moment and the fatigue life, and decreased, for a given static load and a given number of cycles, deflections and crack widths.
