In this paper the shear behaviour of Steel Fibre Reinforced SCC (SFRSCC) is investigated and compared to that of traditional Steel Fibre Reinforced Concrete (SFRC). The post cracking shear behaviour is evaluated by means of a modified Japanese standard, namely the JSCE- SF6 standard test method. Several SCC mixtures, steel fibres (with different slenderness (l/d) and length (l)) and dosages were examined. The results obtained for SFRSCC were compared with traditional SFRC. Additionally, four-point bending tests were performed on large scale slender SFRC and SFRSCC beams. The results obtained within this study, show a similar and in some cases even better mechanical behaviour for SFRSCC compared to SFRC.
