(a) Strain corresponding to peak stress, , (b) ultimate strain, (c) initial tangent modulus of elasticity is the slope at origin of the stress-strain curve, (d) secant modulus elasticity, (e) refer to Ayub et al. [10], and (f) reinforcing index by volume of fibres. Note. Each mix ID is distinguished based on the concrete type, fibre type, and fibre volume fraction. Mix ID PP-1: first letter “P” represents plain concrete, second letter “P” represents “PVA fibre,” and the number after hyphen represents “1%” fibre volume. ¥Mix ID SP-2: first letter “S” represents silica fume concrete, second letter “P” represents “PVA fibre,” and the number after hyphen represents “2%” fibre volume.
