Statistical overview of data of corrosion investigations of fibre-reinforced concrete
An understanding of the potential for fibres to corrode in aggressive environments is essential to the long-term design of fibre reinforced concretes. Given a significant number of individual tests that have been conducted using a range of different specimen types (variations in specimen dimension and material properties) and accelerating conditions (variation in corrosion technique and exposure time), existing tests are summarized to provide an overview of the field and to help inform future experimental design. This dataset consists of 342 individual tests from 20 existing research studies. The parameters in the database include concrete strength, fiber geometry, fiber pre-damage (with/without pre-corrosion), the technique used to accelerate corrosion, corrosion measurement techniques, and number of specimens for any specific scenario.
