Title: 544.3R-93: Guide for Specifying, Mixing, Placing, and Finishing Steel Fiber Reinforced Concrete (Reapproved 1998)
Publication: Technical Documents
Appears on pages(s): 10
Keywords: fiber reinforced concrete
Abstract:Note: 544.3R-93 is available in PDF format only. However, a newer version of this document exists. This document was replaced by 544.3R-08.
This guide describes the current technology in specifying, proportioning, mixing, placing, and finishing of steel fiber reinforced concrete (SFRC). Much of the current conventional concrete practice applies to SFRC. The emphasis in the 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 surface textures. Sample mix proportions are tabulated. A listing of references is provided covering proportioning, properties, refractory uses, shotcrete technology, and general information on SFRC.
