Keywords: Fibers | bond strength | repair material | flowable concrete | performance

The use of fibers in concrete or mortar is well known for their potential to enhance the flexural toughness, the energy dissipation and the impact resistance for many structural applications especially in building repairs and other Civil Engineering works. The use of fibers in flowable concrete provides great advantages in arresting cracks and enhancing the flexural rigidity of the composite material. Hence, this study investigates the procedure of tests required to determine the conductivity of the repair material by adoption of some combined systems of repair materials with concrete and the bond action of this repair material (Flowable high strength system).
