Flexural Behaviour of Basalt Chopped Strands Fiber Reinforced Concrete Beams

In this paper, to study the behaviour of RC beam structures strengthened by using basalt chopped strands fiber concrete.For this research work, Total 8 nos. of beams can be taken.

The main activity of Global Basalt Engineering LLC is creation of effective productions on release of continuous basalt fiber (СBF) with technologies of the last generation and composites on the basis of СBF (Basalt Fiber-Reinforced Polymer Composites as BFRP).

The fiber is added to the concrete for various proportions of (ie., 0%, 0.5%, 1.0%, 1.5%, 2.0%, 2.5%) concrete mixes. This concrete beams are casted for a grade M-20 as per according to IS- 10262: 2009. After the beams 28- days to immersion the purify water then PH Value is 8. Finally, to determine the Load – Deflection, Ductility performance .This results shows that use of fiber reinforced concrete improve flexural performance of the beams during loading.
