Test Report of Basalt Fiber Reinforced Concrete and Polypropylene Fiber Reinforced Concrete, Polyacrylonitrile fiber reinforced concrete

These tests examine the performance of Basalt Chopped Strands (BCS), reinforced concrete. The tests will also compare and analyze the reinforcement performance with polypropylene and polyacrylonitrile fibers.

Fiber reinforced concrete composite properties, such as crack resistance, reinforcement and increase in toughness are dependent on the mechanical properties of the fiber, bonding properties of the fiber and matrix, as well as the quantity and distribution within the matrix of the fibers.

In relation to the elastic modulus, fibers are divided into two types, those where the elastic modulus of fibers is less than the elastic modulus of the matrix: ie. cellulose fiber, polypropylene fiber, polyacrylonitrile fiber, etc.; and those where the elastic modulus of fibers is greater than the elastic modulus of the matrix: ie. asbestos fibers, glass fiber, steel fiber, carbon fiber, aramid fiber, etc. Basalt fiber is a new material that has been increasingly used in recent years.

Factors affecting the properties of composites made by 4D printing

3D printing is the process where layers of materials are deposited to make structures of complex geometries. 4D printing is a process that combines 3D printing with the application of some activating agent in order to change the shape of the manufactured part after the process, e.g. the flat structure will change its shape to take up the desired complicated shape such as “curved” or “S” shaped.
