Fiber distribution in ready-mix concrete

While manufacturing fiber reinforced concrete, it is of utmost importance that quality and homogeneous fiber distribution are ensured. To verify that the fibers are evenly distributed in ready-mixed concrete, SS-EN 206 has introduced requirements for continuous control of fiber distribution.

Investigation of Fiber Distribution in Concrete Batches ...

Sep 02, 2014  This paper presents the findings of an investigation of the fiber content variations in concrete being discharged from a ready-mix truck at the construction site. Concrete samples were extracted from the truck drums at the beginning, middle and end of discharge. Subsequently, fibers in each sample were separated from the concrete, and weighed. Presumably, synthetic macro fibers
