Answer & Explanation

Exp. IIT-Hyderabad developed affordable fibre-reinforced concrete

IIT-Hyderabad has developed an affordable Ultra-High Performance Fibre Reinforced Concrete (UHPFRC) for bridge and other infrastructure applications.

The cost of UHPFRC was brought down and made affordable by reducing the quantity of cement, fibres and replacing costly fine aggregates with cheaper locally available ones through proper gradation.

The composition combines the best features of self-consolidating concrete (SCC), fibre-reinforced concrete (FRC) and high-performance concrete (HPC).

The cost of UHPFRC developed at IIT-H is about two times cheaper than commercially available proprietary products.

UHPFRC developed at IIT-H for pre-stressing applications yields a cube compressive strength of 150 MPa and a direct tensile strength of 8.0 MPa.

The aim is to develop affordable ultra-high-performance concrete using locally available materials and do a thorough material categorization to understand the behaviour of UHPFRC in compression, tension, fracture, and direct shear.
