Fracture properties of concrete specimens made from alkali activated binders.
(IOP Publishing, 2017-09-15)
The aim of this paper is to quantify crack initiation and other fracture properties – effective fracture toughness and specific fracture energy – of two types of concrete with an alkali activated binder. The beam specimens ...
Effect of steel fibres dosage in alkali-activated slag mortars on acoustic emission obtained during three-point bending tests
(EDP Sciences – Web of Conferences, 2017-05-24)
The acoustic emission phenomenon is directly associated with nucleation of cracks in structural materials during loading. This paper analyses acoustic emission signals captured during three-point bending fracture tests of ...
