|Title||Mechanical properties of old concrete—UHPFC interface|
The uniqueness of Ultra-High Performance Fiber Concrete (UHPFC) is its extremely low porosity gives its low permeability and high durability, making it potentially suitable for rehabilitation and retrofitting reinforced concrete structures or for use as a new construction material. This experimental study was performed to assess the bond strength between UHPFC as a repair material and Normal Concrete (NC) substrate as an old material; split tensile strength and slant shear tests were performed to quantify the bond strength in indirect tension and shear respectively, also the correlation between split tensile strength and slant shear were studied. The result showed that UHPFC has been cured by steam, gives high bond strength at the early age of the repair process, and interacts well with the surface of NC, as a result the failure occurred mostly in the NC substrate. A good correlation between the slant shear test results and the split tensile test results has been observed.
