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.
