From slabs, walls and footings to foundations and infrastructure projects, over the past two decades, Helix® Micro Rebar™ has been proven in the field.

Crimped Steel Fiber blended with multi-length monofilament micro-synthetic fibers View Item For over a century, The Euclid Chemical Company has served the global building market as a worldwide quality supplier of specialty products and technical support services for the concrete and masonry construction industry. Plain concrete and steel ber reinforced concrete (SFRC) cylinder specimens are modeled in the nite element (FE) platform of ANSYS. And validated with the experimental results and failure patterns. I need Papers and previous work that may help in modeling High Performance Reinforced Concrete with Polypropylene fibers in ANSYS 15 Software. I want to model a concrete beam containing steel. This paper presents a numerical investigation of the mechanical performance and ductility of concrete beams reinforced by both fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) and steel tension reinforcement. Three-dimensional (3D) finite element (FE) analysis of beams with both FRP and steel reinforcement was conducted by first using ANSYS to verify the reliability.

Proactive Concrete Reinforcement Technology

Saves You Time

Every 10,000 sq. ft. of rebar replaced with Micro Rebar™ saves one full day of construction.

Saves You Money

Using Micro Rebar™ allows contractors to simplify operations, dramatically reducing project costs.

A Superior Product

When compared to rebar, Helix® Micro Rebar™ can increase fatigue resistance by up to 300%, and flexural strength by up to 33%.

Composite columns, steel tube, finite element, steel fibers, slenderness ratio


The present study investigates the behavior of steel fiber reinforced concrete filled steel box columns (SFRCFSBC) targeting to enhance their strength. A nonlinear finite element model using ANSYS program has been developed to investigate the structural behavior of the inspected columns. The results obtained from that model has been compared with those calculated using Euro code (EC4), AISC/LRFD (2005) and the Egyptian Code of Practice for Steel Construction (ECPSC/LRFD 2007). The comparison indicated that the results of the model have been evaluated to an acceptable limit of accuracy. A parametric study was carried out to investigate the effect of wall thickness, column slenderness and percentage of steel fiber in concrete on the ultimate strength of composite columns. Confinement of the concrete core provided by the steel case was also investigated. It can be concluded from the results that a considerable increase in compressive and flexural strength may be gained by increasing the steel fiber percentage up to 4%. The highest rate of increase in strength for long columns was about 20% by using steel fiber percentage between 0.5% and 1.0%, while for short and medium columns was about 10% by using steel fiber percentage between 1% and 2%.
