Abstract: A new experimental technique according has been introduced to evaluate the cracking behaviour of fibre reinforced Self-Compacting High Performance Concrete (FRSCHPC). According to Austria Guidelines for fibre reinforced concrete, the mixtures with different fibre types (steel fibres and PP-fibres) and fibre contents have been cast directly into a circular panel and the assembly has been subjected to a drying environment by air exhausting to produce cracking. Lengths, widths and the maximum widths of the resulting cracks in the overlay have been measured. The using of fibres - especially the using of hybrid fibres - has been found to be very effective in reducing the restrained shrinkage cracks.
