Title : Cyclic Behaviour of Steel Fibre Reinforced Rubberized Concrete Beams

Abstract : The study investigates the cyclic behaviour of steel fibre reinforced rubberized concrete beams. The variables considered in this research study were different replacement levels of coarse aggregate with sand coated rubber shreds (2.5%,5% and 7.5%) and steel fibre volume fraction(0.5% and 1.0%).A total of seven beams were cast and tested under cyclic loading in a standard loading frame of 500kN capacity. The test results showed that RC beams with inclusion of steel fibres and sand coated rubber shreds exhibit improved cyclic performance in terms of number of cycles sustained and energy absorption capacity.
