Paper by JURRIAANS NIJSSEN FAERBER VERWAARD VAN DEN BOOM from ISCR 11th 2010 Seville Spain
The paper deals with the development and application of fibre/concrete mix in general and specifically with the detailed design and execution for highway service stations and container terminals. It includes empirical evidence for the maximum size of concrete slabs without construction joints and the risks of cracks from dilatation or expansion. Due to the significant reduction of contraction and construction joints compared with traditional concrete, the fibre/concrete mix is practically maintenance free. There are many applications in bus lanes, railway quays, traffic lanes at intersections/ traffic lights, biking paths, rest areas, (un)loading quays, entry/exits and industrial areas.
