Title: FRC design according to the draft Australian bridge code
Author(s): Stephen Foster
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 29-40
Keywords: Steel fibres, concrete, design, standards.
Abstract:In January 2014 the Draft for Public Comment Australian Standard for the design of concrete bridges was released (DR AS5100.5); this is the first standard in Australia, and one
of the few national standards in the world, to include design procedures for steel-fibrereinforced concrete in a comprehensive way. This presentation provides the background for the development of the design rules, including on determination of the mechanical properties of the materials, design models for strength and serviceability, considerations with regards to durability and on quality control measures. Validation of the mechanical models adopted for design is also presented.
