Abstract: Self-compactibility while fresh properties of hybrid fiber concrete (HFC) containing PVA fibers were investigated using combinations of fibers with different lengths and diameters. According to the results; 1) Short fibers affect the viscosity of the matrix. The viscosity of the matrix increases as the short fiber content increases. 2) A large addition of long fibers in a matrix with a low viscosity causes fiber segregation, but this problem can be solved by adding a certain amount of short fibers to increase the viscosity of the matrix. 3) A method of assessing the fresh properties of HFC using a slump flow diagram was proposed. By the use of this diagram, the fresh properties of HFC can be qualitatively assessed based on the excess matrix film thickness (tm) and segregation factor (sgf) using the long and short fiber contents as the parameters.
