Abstract

Tensile fatigue behavior of composite materials are of significant interest since in structural applications they are often subjected to cyclic loading. However, very few results for fiber reinforced concrete under cyclic load have been reported. In the present research sustainable cement composites were produced by partially replacing 50% of Portland cement with calcined clays and using natural sisal fibers as reinforcement. These composites presented ultimate monotonic tensile stress of 12 MPa and strain at failure of up to 1.5%. Tension-tension fatigue tests were performed with maximum stress levels ranging from 4 to 9.6 MPa at a frequency of 2 Hz. These tests were carried out up to 106 cycles or until the composite failure, whichever occurred first. It was found that up to 6 MPa the composites were able to survive 106 cycles. Composites that survived 106 cycles were re-tested under monotonic load to establish its residual strength. Optical fluorescent microscopy was used to observe the cracking mechanisms after fatigue tests.
