Abstract

This paper presents the experimental investigation carried on Steel Fiber Reinforced Concrete (SFRC) subjected to repeated loading. The SFRC beam specimen of size 500mm × 100mm × 100mm containing mixed steel fibers of size 50mm × 2mm × 0.6mm and 0.5mmΦ× 30mm in different proportions were tested under two point flexural fatigue load at a frequency of 2Hz at various stress levels. The readings obtained from the flexural fatigue test were used to plot S-N diagram and also to perform statistical analysis using two parameter Weibull distributions.
