Application of
Concrete Precast Elements

STEEL FIBER OFFER THE HIGHEST POTENTIAL FOR SUBSTITUTING TRADITIONAL REINFORCEMENT

FAST AND DEPENDABLE REINFORCEMENT IN PRECAST APPLICATION

Steel fibres can serve to optimise processes considerably, with the result being significant cost savings. When used for concrete precast elements such as pipes, chutes, tubing, or pre-fab cellars, the exceptional material properties of FIBPRO steel fibres have proven to be perfect for reinforcement. An example of steel fibres replacing rebar stirrups and working in combination with traditional reinforcement is precast girders.Major precast elements can be constructed with steel fibres as the sole reinforcement, for example waste-water pipes and tunnel linings.Steel fibre reinforced concrete can solve these problems as it is easy to place and to consolidate. Steel fibre reinforced concrete can reach sufficient bearing capacities for handling and even full ductility for the final state, depending on the fibre type and dosage rate

BENEFITS

COST ANALYSIS

BENEFITS

Reduce construction time by omitting the rebar installation process
Able to construct through fast-track approach using Laser Screed equipment
High resistance to cracking; increase in toughness (residual strength) after cracking, rise in reinforcement effect and safety of permanent structures

COST EFFECTIVENESS

Reduce labor costs, as no reinforcement assembly process is required Reduce working hours and construction costs
Reduce construction cost due to shortened construction period.
Reduce working hours and construction costs.

QUALITY

Streamlined work process; rise in quality and safety .
Increased surface hardness due to burnishing.
Reduce working hours and construction costs.
Increased crack suppression effect compared to RC method

DISADVANTAGES
OF CONVENTIONAL REINFORCEMENT IN PRECAST
ADVANTAGES
OF STEEL FIBER IN PRECAST
More expensive production cost.Economic and cost saving technology.
Surface of the concrete is more prone to damages specially for long distance travelling.Surface of the concrete is less prone to damages.
Conventional reinforcement take much more time to install.Low material cost and concrete is directly poured.
More Prone to chipping in concrete surfaceReplaces shear reinforcement which is complicated with prestressed precast element .
The surface of the concrete is unprotected and susceptible to damage resulting from the greater spacing with classic reinforcement.The surface of the concrete is unprotected and susceptible to damage resulting from the greater spacing with classic reinforcement.

TRANSPORT WITH
LESS DAMAGE

Thanks to the uniform distribution of the fibres, the tubbing segments are also more stable against vibration and impact shocks during transport.

GREAT STABILITY
DURING INSTALLATION

When installing with the aid of a tunnelling machine, high loads act on the components. Here too, the stability of fibre concrete is an advantage.
