Study On the Compressive and Split Tensile Strength Properties of Basalt Fibre Concrete Members

At present Worldwide, a great research is being conducted concerning the use of fiber reinforced plastic wraps, laminates and sheets in the repair and strengthening of reinforced concrete members.

Experimental investigations the cube and cylinder of concrete beams with and without basalt fiber carried out. They made using each grade of concrete as normal concrete and basalt concrete(M20 & M30). From this study it is estimated that onset onwards basalt concrete specimens increasing strength when compared to control concrete. From the research it was proposed that, the usage of Basalt fibers in low cost composites for civil infrastructure applications gives good mechanical properties like strength and lower cost predicted for basalt fibers.

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.
