(in lingua inglese)
When pond ash content increased for a given steel fibre content in the beams, ultimate load increased. For example, in beams with 10% pond ash + 2% steel fibre, the increment was about 30% when compared with that of 10% pond ash beams of 0% steel fibre. When pond ash content of 20% was added to 1% steel fibre, the increment was about 43% when compared with that of beams with 0% pond ash + 1% steel fibre. When the pond ash content increased to 30%, for 1% fibre content, the increment was 43% when compared to 0% pond ash + 1% steel fibre.
