Abstract:
The guide describes the current technology in specifying, mixing, placing, and finishing of steel fiber reinforced concrete (SFRC). Much of the current conventional concrete practice applies to SFRC. The emphasis in this guide is to describe the differences between conventional concrete and SFRC and how to deal with them. Guidance is provided in mixing techniques to achieve uniform mixtures, placement techniques to assure adequate compaction, and finishing techniques to assure satisfactory surrface textures. Sample mix proportion tables are tabulated. A listing of references is provided covering proportioning, properties, refactory uses, shotcerte technology, and general information on SFRC.
