Abstract
The flexural creep of plastic fiber reinforced concrete (PFRC) is a controversial issue since significant doubts regarding the suitability of this type of fiber and its influence in the long-term behavior of the material still exist. The objective of this paper is to evaluate the post-cracking creep response of PFRC beams under flexural load in comparison with that of steel fiber reinforced concrete (SFRC) beams. The aim is to explore how the pre-crack opening and the environmental condition aff...
