The aim of the present paper is to investigate the fracture properties of a cement-based mortar reinforced with Date Palm Mesh (DPM) fibres. In particular, three-point bending tests on DPM fibrereinforced specimens (with different fibre volume fractions) are performed. On the basis of the experimental results, the value of fracture toughness is analytically determined according to the Modified Two-Parameter Model (MTPM) recently proposed by some of the present authors for quasi-brittle materials.

Abstract

The aim of the present paper is to investigate the fracture properties of a cement-based mortar reinforced with Date Palm Mesh (DPM) fibres. In particular, three-point bending tests on DPM fibrereinforced specimens (with different fibre volume fractions) are performed. On the basis of the experimental results, the value of fracture toughness is analytically determined according to the Modified Two-Parameter Model (MTPM) recently proposed by some of the present authors for quasi-brittle materials.
