Effect of Polypropylene Fiber on the Strength and Dry ...

Fine coal gangue aggregate (CGA) has a high water absorption, which increases the cracking risk of mortar caused by dry shrinkage. The effects of polypropylene (PP) fiber on the fluidity, strength, dry shrinkage, and cracking of CGA mortar were studied in this paper. The results show that PP fiber reduces the fluidity of CGA mortar, but PP fiber improves …
