Title: Structural cast-in-place SFRC: technology, control criteria and recent applications in spain
Author(s): P. Serna, S. Arango, T. Ribeiro, A.M. Núñez, E. Garcia-Taengua

Abstract:Steel fiber-reinforced concrete (SFRC) has been traditionally applied to pavements or tunnelling. However, classical structural applications have not been developed so fully. This paper examines different reasons which may justify the lack of this application. Several technologies on the fiber dosing system are presented and assessed. The SFRC reception control and acceptance criteria have been developed in accordance with the upcoming Spanish code. Adopting such criteria is justified on previous experiences and test viability under cast-in-place conditions. Some lines of action to promote the use of fibers with structural purposes are proposed. Two examples of recent applications are also set out, and a justification of the convenience of SFRC in terms of structural evaluation and durability under seawater conditions is provided.
