Abstract: Based on the idea to take simultaneously advantage of the effects of different types of fibers, new materials called Hybrid FRCs have been developed by combining fibers different for geometry and material. In the present paper, the benefits in terms of concrete toughness from a combination of micro and macro steel-fibers are evaluated by means of both material tests (uniaxial and bending tests on specimens of different sizes) and structural tests (full-scale slabs on grade). Hybrid combination of short and long steel fibers can improve concrete toughness for both small and large crack opening displacements.
