Abstract

Discrete fibres have been added to concrete to improve its performance. Besides the post-cracking strength also other performance aspects can be enhanced. Fibre Reinforced SCC (FRSCC) and less flowable fibre concretes form the general group of fibre concrete. FRSCC distinguishes itself from conventional vibrated concrete in three main dimensions: strength, fibre content and flowability, the last two aspects being a prerequisite for FRSCC.
This chapter starts with a definition of FRSCC, which is a broad group of different types of fibre-containing mixtures. After consideration of their influence on the characteristics in the fresh state by adequate mix design and appropriate execution FRSCC can be applied to produce outstanding concrete structures. The discussion includes a broader view on execution, potential applications, material properties, structural behaviour and durability performance.
