This study investigated the pull-out resistance of superelastic shape memory alloy (SMA) short fibers in mortar with consideration of various end-anchorages that provide different anchoring actions. For the purpose, four types of SMA fibers were prepared using NiTi SMA wires with a diameter of 1.0 mm and the following four end shapes: straight (ST), L-shaped (LS), N-shaped (NS), and spearhead-shaped (SH). The straight-ended fiber was a reference with no working on the end, and the fiber with the spearhead-shaped end was crimped to make the end part flat. The fibers with L- and N-shaped ends were bent with single or double bending. The results showed that only the spearhead-shaped fibers showed self-centering behavior because of the superelasticity of the SMA after slip occurred. This paper discusses the reasons that the ST, LS, and NS fibers do not show self-centering behavior and proposes a concept to induce superelastic behavior in SMA fibers in mortar or concrete.
