Abstract

This paper reports the results on cracking propagation and pattern of reinforced concrete (RC) beam conducted using irregular-shaped polyethylene terephthalate (IPET) as a fibre. Three volume fraction of IPET fibre is used namely, 0.5%, 1% and 1.5%. All RC beam specimens are tested using four point loading under flexural capacity behaviour. Prior to structural test, the materials properties which include the compressive & tensile strength test and modulus of elasticity test were determined. These results are compared with control RC beam. It is found that the RC beam with IPET fibre does not significantly change the behaviour of failure mode, cracking propagation and pattern compared to control RC beam
