The effects of steel fiber waste tyre on properties of high strength fly ash concrete
Departement of Civil Engineering, Universitas Andalas, Padang, Indonesia
The utilization of steel fiber from waste tyres can be an alternative to reduce waste tyres due to the increase of tyre production in Indonesia annually. Steel fiber from waste tyre can be added to concrete mix to improve the concrete properties. In this study, the effects of steel fiber waste tyre (SFWT) on high strength concrete containing fly ash was investigated experimentally. The content of fly ash in the high strength concrete is 30% of being partially replaced the cement weight. Steel fiber waste tyres are obtained from extracting the steel wire of the waste tyres and then cut into 4 cm long. The addition of SFWT on the high strength fly ash concrete is 0.5%, 1.0%, 1.5%, and 2% by concrete volume. The mechanical properties of concrete such as compressive strength, tensile strength, and flexural strength are tested at day 28. The test results show that the addition of 2 % SFWT on high strength fly ash concrete increase the compressive strength, tensile strength, and flexural strength of the concrete by around 9.99 %, 63.75 %, 18.18 %, respectively.
