Abstract:Steel fiber reinforced concrete has been widely used in civil engineering. To promote further application of SFRC, there is a need to unify the design methods and construction techniques. Since 1988, an editorial committee for compiling a code for design and construction of steel fiber reinforced concrete structures has begun to work towards this purpose in China. Based on the results of extensive research activities and the experiences of practical application of SFRC, the draft of this code has been finished recently. The main contents of this code includes the requirements for the materials, basic design principles, ultimate limit state design, checking of the serviceability limit state, construction of SFRC, detailing of the SFRC structures with steel reinforcement, rules for design and construction of special structures, and design and construction for shotcrete SFRC. This paper will briefly introduce the main content of this code.
