Experiment report: the basic properties of cement systems with three types of basalt fibers

The basic properties of cement systems reinforced with three types of basalt fibers were investigated in comparison to the system without fibers and two systems reinforced with two types of alkali-resistant glass fiber.

The following experiments have been conducted:

  • three point bend test
  • axial compression

Exposure of samples prior to testing was 14 days. The length of chopped basalt fiber was 6.4 mm. For reference, two types of alkali-resistant glass fiber (AR-glass) were used. The volume fraction of AR-glass coincided with that of basalt fiber.

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.
