Structural Concrete, Vol. 4, no. 2, June 2003

Structural behaviour of steel fibre reinforced concrete

Results of an experimental study on 21 fibre reinforced concrete beams indicate that steel fibres do not only increase shear capacity but also provide substantial post-peak resistance and ductility in conventionally reinforced beams as well as in prestressed pretensioned concrete beams. The tests were carried out on 2m long beam specimens reinforced with longitudinal bars and fibres. Test variables were amount and type of fibres, amount of stirrups and type of longitudinal reinforcement (prestressed or non-prestressed).
