Abstract : The constitutive properties of steel fiber reinforced concrete (FRC) are being studied experimentally in a unique fluid cushion multiaxial cubical test cell at the University of Colorado. In the first phase of the program, the behavior of FRC was tested under three-dimensional compressive loading. The strength and stress-strain properties are analyzed by using constitutive models available in the literature. In the second phase, a modification to the existing test apparatus was made for testing cubical specimens under direct tension loading. The modification consists of brushes with individual bristles glued to the specimen. In this paper, results are shown from the biaxial tension-compression test program to demonstrate the strength interaction. (Author)
