Title: An introduction to the Chinese guideline for fibre-reinforced concrete structures
Author(s): Christopher K. Y. Leung
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 41-50
Keywords: Fibre-reinforced concrete, concrete technology, structural design.
Abstract:Research and applications of fibre-reinforced concrete (FRC) started in China during the early 1970’s, and have grown substantially over the last few decades. The first design
guideline for fibre-reinforced concrete structures was developed in 1992 and subsequently updated in 2004. The design guideline focuses on steel fibre concrete, which is most
commonly used in practical applications, but also has provisions for the use of synthetic fibres. In this paper, a general overview of the guideline will be provided. The design
concepts for both serviceability and ultimate states are presented first. Various applications covered in the guideline, including fibre-reinforced structural or semi-structural components, pavements, bridges, hydraulic structures, shotcrete (for tunnel and repair) as well as waterproofing will then be described. By providing a concise summary of the guideline, we hope to convey an idea about the current state of fibre-reinforced concrete design in China.
