Basic Mechanical Properties of Basalt Fiber Reinforced Recycled Aggregate Concrete

In order to study the basic mechanical properties of basalt fiber reinforced recycled aggregate concrete, the concrete mix ratio, the length and the volume mixing ratio of chopped basalt fiber yarn are designed for changing factors.

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).

A total of 324 specimens have been completed for this investigation. The compressive strength, splitting tensile strength, elastic modulus and axial compressive strength of basalt fiber recycled concrete have carried on the experimental study and theoretical analysis as 81 specimens, respectively. In all specimens, coarse aggregate were replaced by recycled aggregate with a replacement rate of 100%.

Experimental results show that the failure process and failure pattern of basalt fiber recycled concrete and ordinary concrete are similar; With the improvement of concrete strength grade; When the volume mixing ratio of chopped basalt fiber yarn is 0.2%, the mechanic performance can effectively improve, and the length of chopped basalt fiber has less effect on the mechanical indexes; The conversion relation between common concrete mechanics index is no longer suitable for basalt fiber recycled concrete, new conversion formulas for basalt fiber recycled concrete between the mechanics index were presented through fitting experimental data.
