Simões, T.; Octávio, C.; Valença, J.; Costa, H.; Dias-da-Costa, D.; Júlio, E.Published 2017-01-01The main objective of the research described in this paper was to evaluate how the concrete compressive strength and the geometry of the steel fibres influence the behaviour of the fibre/matrix interface. With this aim, ...Open AccessArticle
Modelling the behaviour of steel fibre reinforced concrete using a discrete strong discontinuity approach Octávio, C.; Dias-da-Costa, D.; Alfaiate, J.; Júlio, E.Published 2016-01-01The use of Fibre Reinforced Concrete (FRC) is gradually wide-spreading due to the significant advantages relatively to Normal Concrete (NC). In the case of steel fibres, the quasi-brittle behaviour of plain concrete ...Open AccessArticle
