    Abstract

    Durability studies are carried out by subjecting FRC-beams to combined mechanical and environmental load. Mechanical load is obtained by exposing beams to il-point bending until a predefined crack width is reached, using a newly developed test setup. As environmental load, exposure to water (capillary water uptake) is used, involving an in-situ method and a laboratory method. Three different concrete qualities as well as steel fibres (ZP) and polypropylene fibres (PP) are used.

    Results of the durability tests on cracked FRC-beams are compared to results for uncracked FRC-beams and beams without fibres and the influence of fibres and cracks on the water uptake is discussed.
