Thesis Subject: The Effects of Hexagonal Wire Mesh as Inner Jacket on
Behavior of Reinforced High Strength Self-Compacting Concrete Beams

Description

  • 2016 - 2017

The target of the research was about examining cyclic performance of full-scale high strength self-compacting concrete beams reinforced with hexagonal wire mesh (HWM) and it was aimed at replacing HWM instead of traditional stirrups. The project included rheology tests of self-compacting concrete on different mixtures and compressive strength, tensile strength, flexural strength test for hardened phase of concrete. Furthermore, reinforced concrete beams were tested under monotonic and cyclic loading condition with various scenarios of reinforcing techniques with different HWM types. An economic analysis was conducted to evaluate proposed methods from practical and economic standpoint.
