In order to allow the use of steel fibres as only reinforcement in structural applications, it was necessary to improve the post-cracking behavior of SFRC in such a way to get high ductility levels and even full ductility.
This scope can be reached by using fibres with higher performances and/or by increasing the fibre dosage rates. However, from a certain dosage rate and depending on the fibre used, workability of SFRC becomes a concern. It is therefore important to setup SFRC mixes guaranteeing as well performance and workability.
As the leading steel fibre supplier for structural applications, ArcelorMittal offers his customers today a large range of possible utilizations:
For all these applications, a technical support is guaranteed by ArcelorMittal engineers. In most countries, structural SFRC applications require certification as there are no standards available. Please contact your local sales office or the Technical Department regarding the possibilities in your country.
