Steel fibre concrete

Amendments and modifications to DIN 1045 Parts 1/3 and DIN EN 206-1, Guideline of the German Steel Reinforced Con-crete Committee (DAfStb), March 2010 edition, 47 pages, A4, with 23 illustrations/tables, € 79.50. Beuth-Verlag GmbH, 10787 Berlin.

Steel fibre concrete has been used by structural engineers for many years. Adding steel fibres improves bending tensile strength and shearing strength as well as cracking and deformation behaviour. The use of steel fibres in concrete is currently based on approval by the building authorities.

The new DAfStb guideline incorporates steel fibre concrete...
