Abstract
High performance fiber reinforced concrete (HPFRC) is recognized as suitable material for structural applications. The number of national codes that have approved it is an evidence. Structures where HPFRC is generally used can be subjected to fatigue loads and are expected to resist millions of cycles during their service life. Cyclic loads affect significantly the characteristics of materials and can cause fatigue failures. The most demanded cross-sections being cracked under tensile stresses d...
