This paper involves testing of steel fibre reinforced concrete(SFRC) beams subjected to static and dynamic loads. Thedynamic load was generated by a detonating explosive charge.The work focused upon studying the mechanical behaviour ofthe beams. The concrete compressive strength varied between36 MPa and 189 MPa with a fibre content of 1.0 percent byvolume. Two different fibre lengths having constant length-todiameterratio were employed. The experimental results indicatethat the toughness is reduced when increasing the compressivestrength and the dynamic strength is higher than thecorresponding static strength.
