Inhoud: Steel fiber-reinforced concrete (SFRC) is a cementitious material reinforced with discrete fibers. The energy absorption capacity is the main material property benefited by fiber reinforcement. Closed-loop servo-controlled equipment should be used to evaluate this property. The tests should be carried out using displacement control in order to obtain the postpeak force- displacement relationship (tensile strain-softening branch). To assess the fracture energy of SFRC, three-point bending tests were carried out using displacement control. Series of notched beams reinforced with 30, 60, and 90 kg/m3 of hooked-end steel fibers were tested. Besides the energy dissipated in fracturing the concrete, the energy determined from the force-displacement relationship can also include the energy absorbed during nonlinear behavior of concrete in compression. Ductile materials, such as concrete reinforced with a high content of fibers, develop large deflections before exhausting their energy absorption capacity. In these cases, the "fixed" points of the bar supporting the displacement transducer may not remain fixed, adding an extra deflection into the control displacement transducer and thus leading to incorrect evaluation of the fracture energy. These factors are analyzed in the present work in order to assess the suitability of the specimen dimensions and the test procedures for evaluating the fracture energy of SFRC.
