PUNCH TEST FOR THE ASSESSMENT OF FRACTURE ENERGY ON CONCRETE MIXED TO NATURAL PLANT FIBERS

Ductility of a material that collapses because of the propagation of cracks depends on elastic properties of the material, on the fracture energy as well as on the structural dimensions. In this paper we discuss the use of the punch tests for the assessment of both the tensile strength and the fracture energy of cylindrical concrete specimens with different volume content of natural fibers derived from a very common plant of Sicily (agave). For the...
