Description

A research project titled “Development of Fibre-Reinforced Concrete Pipes” funded by Con Cast Pipe and Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) was conducted between 2011 and 2014 by Professor Moncef Nehdi and his research team at Western University to study the structural behaviour of steel fibre reinforced concrete pipe (SFRCP). 142 pieces of SFRCP, and 58 pieces of conventional reinforced concrete pipe (RCP) and non-reinforced concrete pipe with 300 mm, 450 mm, 600 mm inner diameters were manufactured using existing fully-automated equipment. These SFRCP specimens contain various fibre contents and two fibre types. During the manufacturing week, full production and quality crews were deployed to accomplish the planned activities. Over 300 testing cylinders and 60 testing beams were collected. A portion of the pipes were sent to the university for laboratory work and full scale testing. Another portion was tested in the precast plant using conventional testing equipment. This report presents the manufacturing and testing activities in order to demonstrate the practicality of SFRCP manufacturing. The challenges are discussed and concluded at the end of this report providing insights for any future development of SFRCP.
