Abstract: 
in the present work the experimental compressive stress-strain behaviour for both unreinforced and steel fibres reinforced concrete was evaluated. Two different types of steel fibres were used: industrial steel fibres and recycled steel fibres. The recycled steel fibres were derived, through a mechanical procedure, from the disposal of scrap tires. The experimental work was carried out by the Structural Engineering group of the University of Salento with the support of Italcementi S.p.A.
