The recent fib Model Code for Concrete Structures 2010 (MC2010) recognizes fiber reinforced concrete (FRC) as a new structural material, favoring its usage in innovative structural applications. FRC is considered primarily a material with a non-negligible residual strength after cracking. According to MC2010, FRC can be adopted as the only reinforcement in structures provided that both strength and ductility requirements are fulfilled.

Abstract

The recent fib Model Code for Concrete Structures 2010 (MC2010) recognizes fiber reinforced concrete (FRC) as a new structural material, favoring its usage in innovative structural applications. FRC is considered primarily a material with a non-negligible residual strength after cracking. According to MC2010, FRC can be adopted as the only reinforcement in structures provided that both strength and ductility requirements are fulfilled. This paper presents a discussion on the MC2010 requirements for FRC structures applied to both experimental and numerically simulated structural elements, proposing a refined set of equations to check FRC structures (not containing any classical reinforcement) against both service and ultimate limit states.
