Abstract
In an experimental test program, the behaviour of precast pretensioned concrete beams made with steel fibre concrete and without conventional shear reinforcement is compared with the behaviour of a standard beam made with concrete without fibres but with stirrups as shear reinforcement. Furthermore, a beam made of plain concrete without shear reinforcement is tested to investigate the effect of the shear reinforcement. The beams are designed according to Eurocode 2 and, especially for the beams made with steel fibre concrete, according to the guidelines of the “σ−ε−design method” mentioned in the recommendation from the RILEM TC 162-TDF technical committee. The test results show that, for the particular type of beams considered, ordinary shear reinforcement can be eliminated by using steel fibre reinforced concrete. However, due attention should be paid to the mixing and casting procedures of the steel fibre concrete.
