Abstract [en]

Steel libre concrete was developed during the 2nd d World War with the aim to improve the energy consumption ability of concrete shelters. In Sweden, steel fibre concrete has been used in 50 years especially in two applications; shotcrete for rock strengthening and industrial floors. In spring 2014, SIS the Swedish Standards Institute published a standard on the design of fibre concrete structures. The standard may be regarded as a compliment to Eurocode 2. Additional paragraphs have been added to a number of clauses in Eurocode 2. This paper describes the most important items in the standard and discusses how it can be used in order to simplify the design and production of libre concrete structures with maintained safety level. The overall conclusion is that the new Swedish Standard will remove an obstacle that has restrained the use of fibre concrete in structural beams and slabs.
