Özet

Slurry infiltrated fiber concrete (SIFCON) with advanced engineering properties which appear as open source product development of coming years, is used as precast concrete products in places requiring explosion and high temperature resistance. In this study, properties of SIFCON produced with various fiber and binder materials were investigated. In two different length of steel and polypropylene fiber were used in order to investigate the effect of fiber. In the binder phase Portland cement, pozzolanic cement, calcium aluminate cement, and fly ash were used. At the end of the test results that conducted on prismatic specimens, the effect of fiber and binder type determined with discussing the changes in unit weight, ultrasonic pulse velocity, bending strength, compressive strength, water absorption of SIFCON. In generally, it was observed that the binder type is effected the SIFCON properties. Using steel fiber was more proper than the other fiber due to improve the properties of SIFCON. Macro fibers have been more effective to improve the macro properties.
