instance, steel slag decreased the workability of concrete [ 2 ], also WA decreased the workability, that extra water needed to be added [ 3 ]. On the other hand, mortar flow was slightly increased with increased in GP addition [ 4 ]. Additionally, GP

1 Introduction In recent years usage of self-compacting concrete and self-levelling mortar has highly increased because of its economical and time benefits [ 1 ]. The preparation of self-compacting concrete water plays a vital role in the
In this paper the results of an investigation about steel fibers bond strength in mortar matrix are presented. Pull-out tests were made with four different types of fibers (hookedend, crimped, flat-end, anchoraged), the fibers were embedded individually into a cement based sample with three different embedded length (10, 15, 20 mm). Another variable parameter of the experiment was the strength of the matrix (three different mixture were used), and hooked-end fibers with higher tensile strength and zinc surface coating were tested also. During the tests pull-out force and displacement were measured.
