Steel-fiber reinforced concrete has been in the market for over 50 years and has been used primarily in saw-cut slabs on ground. Extended joint spacing has become the norm in Europe, but it is still the exception in North America. Learn from the experts how steel-fiber reinforced concrete floors are being used to solve difficult floor problems, such as in pile-supported industrial floors, extended-joint steel-fiber reinforced structural floors placed onto a combination of piles and a compacted base course. This allows construction on poor soils and in seismically active regions.
Here is a guide that shows how to use steel fibers in concrete:
- Increasing Concrete Durability: What happens when you add steel fibers to concrete?
Comparison of steel fiber concrete floors to others, along with the advantages and disadvantages associated with them:
- Creating a Long-Term Flat Floor: Consider the options, including this new one.
A look at the guide for steel fiber measuring:
- Fiber Check: Steel fiber measuring system enhances accuracy.
At the event, attendees will learn about the details of designing and constructing steel-fiber reinforced structural floors, a new QC tool that reveals the exact steel fiber dosage of a batch of concrete, and how to expand the market for industrial seamless floors.
The event will be held on Wednesday, Feb. 3 from 7:30 a.m. to 9:15 a.m. Register for World of Concrete 2016. The fee is $45 if purchased after 12/15/15 and onsite. Sponsored by Dramix.
