Abstract

© 2021, Pleiades Publishing, Ltd.Abstract: Results of experimental and numerical investigations of walls reinforced with steel fibered concrete panels are reported. Eighteen walls produced by using hollow bricks and aerated concrete are studied in experiments; these walls are strengthened with concrete panels produced by using steel fibers at certain ratios. Six unreinforced reference specimens are also tested. Load-displacement curves are derived, the maximum stresses and displacements are determined, and the cracking process is studied. The experimental results are compared with those obtained from modeling.
