Abstract: This paper presents the experimental investigation carried on Tin Fiber Reinforced Concrete for pavement application. Even though Concrete is having several desirable properties, its relative low tensile strength and tendency to produce small cracks leads many researchers to work on to improve these properties. The use of recycled fibres from soft drinks tin bottle waste offers additional advantages of waste reduction and resources conservation. A considerable amount of research has been directed towards studying the various properties of plain concrete as well as reinforced concrete due to the addition of steel fibres.Today the highway and transportation construction industry is in need of finding cost effective materials for improving the performance of concrete pavement structures. Hence, an attempt has been made in the present investigation to study the influence of addition of soft drink can waste material as fibres with various aspect ratio keeping the dosage of fibre constant as 1% by volume of concrete. The sizes of the fibre vary from 10mm to 40mm respectively. The properties studied include compressive strength, flexural strengths and fatigue test. The study is conducted on a M40 grade concrete mix for pavement application. The test results are compared for compressive and flexural concrete strengths, with and without use of fibres of different sizes and fatigue characteristics of fibre reinforced concrete are studied and pavement design and cost analysis are done. The test results shows that tin fiber reinforced concrete is an excellent new type of composite material compared with ordinary concrete as thickness of road is reduced without affecting the load carrying capacity and is a cost effective technology.
Keywords: Tin Fiber Reinforced Concrete, Pavement Design, Compression Strength Test, Flexural Strength Test, Fatigue Test, Cost Analysis.
