    Abstract

    In this study, the influences of bidirectional carbon fiber–reinforced polymer (CFRP) confinement along with polypropylene fibers on the impact resistance of concrete samples were experimentally studied. Forty-nine concrete cylindrical samples (with compressive strengths of 20, 30, and 40 MPa) with polypropylene fibers (with content ratios of 0 %, 1 %, 1.5 %, and 2 %) were subjected to weight (46.7 and 66.8 kg) dropping at a height of 1.6 m above the cross-section of the sample. Moreover, half of the samples were tested with CFRP confinement. The number of weight releases required to destroy the samples and the weights of the samples after each release were recorded. The results indicated that the concrete without fibers and fiber-reinforced polymers (with compressive strengths of 20, 30, and 40 MPa) did not have sufficient impact resistance and were swiftly destructed. However, as the content ratios of polypropylene fibers increased, the number of cracks and weight droppings (to reach 70 % of the initial sample weight) increased. Moreover, it was observed that the concrete samples wrapped with the CFRP sheets also withstood impact loading better than fiber-reinforced concrete samples without the confinements. Besides, it was indicated that the prevailing failure mode of the samples with CFRPs was CFRP rupturing. Finally, it was observed that the more the compressive strength of concrete, the more the impact resistance.
