Steel Fiber, SFRC Beams, Ductility


The failure of reinforced concrete structural member which are not reinforced in the web is sudden and catastrophic. Shear reinforcement ensures reasonable ductility and possible suppression of shear failure. Shear reinforcement is provided in the form of stirrups, bent up bars, or by fixing steel plates in the shear zone. Studies in last few decades indicated that the use of steel fibers as shear reinforcement in reinforced concrete beams appears attractive due to the enhancement of first crack tensile strength and ultimate tensile strength, resulting in increase in shear strength and possible prevention of shear failure.
