Compressive Strength, Concrete, Fiber, Hemp Fiber


Material science has been developed day by day in the construction industry. Therefore, solutions must be easily applicable, ecological, and economic. Within the scope of this study, with the addition of hemp fiber additive at different rates (0.25%, 0.50%, and 0.75%) the effect of the fibrous concretes formed on the 7 and 28 days concrete compressive strength was investigated experimentally. Reference samples (3 for 7-day strength, 3 for 28-day strength) and a total of 24 10x10x10 cm cube samples were prepared, 18 of which were hemp fiber reinforced. As a result, It was observed that the desired compressive strength was exceeded in the 0.25% added samples, and the targeted compressive strength was not reached in the other fiber-added samples.
