Abstract: Recently, the use of structural elements made of steel fibre reinforced concrete is becoming more common. Steel fibres are used instead of ordinary steel reinforcement or in addition with reinforcing bars. Both, under service and ultimate loading conditions, the fibre reinforcement is subjected to carry tensile loads. The addition of steel fibres to plain concrete changes its mechanical properties. Depending on the type and amount of fibres an increase in ductility and a better cracking behaviour can be achieved. Especially by the use of steel wire fibres remarkable stresses can be transferred across cracks. The fibre itself can be seen as a kind of reinforcement. Verification concepts for SFRC structural members can be derived from this principle.
Based on these considerations, research work carried out with respect to the shear design of SFRC and SFsRC beams and tunnel linings will be presented in this paper..
