|Abstract:||Slurry infiltrated fibre concrete (SIFCON) is one of the recently developed construction material. SIFCON could be considered as a special type of fibre concrete with high fibre content. The matrix consists of cement slurry or flowing cement mortar. This composite material has already been used for structures subjected to blast loading, repair of pre-stressed concrete beams and safe vaults1. This paper presents the information on behaviour of two-way slabs in flexure. Flexure and cyclic load tests have been conducted and compared with fibre reinforced concrete (FRC) and plain concrete slabs. Both strength and deflection characteristics have been studied. The results of the experimental investigation indicate that with 12% fibre by volume of matrix slabs possess excellent performance among other slabs in all respects.|
