To aim this objective, a set of rheological tests has been conducted to assess the torque necessary to rotate steel fibers immersed into different fresh cement paste and mortar mixes with Bingham fluid behaviour. Fibers of different aspect ratios (length/width) and different geometry, straight and hooked-end, have been evaluated as they are the more commonly used. On the other hand, different parameters (type of mixture, size of aggregates, volume fraction of aggregates) affecting cement mixtures are also analysed and their influence in fiber orientation discussed.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/59367||ISSN:||0950-0618||DOI:||10.1016/j.conbuildmat.2019.02.036||Source:||Construction And Building Materials[ISSN 0950-0618],v. 207, p. 548-562|
