WIRAND FIBRE-REINFORCED CONCRETE--A NEW CONSTRUCTION MATERIAL

FIBREARMERAD WIRAND-BETONG--ETT NYTT KONSTRUKTIONSMATERIAL

The article is based upon the literature describing the experimental work done by J.P. Roumalki and researchers at the Columbus Laboratories of the Battelle Memorial Institute under the guidance of the Battelle Development Corporation, Columbus, Ohio, which led to the international patent for Wirand concrete. This concrete contains up to 3 per cent in volume of 0 0,25 - 0,40 mm steel fibre 25 mm long. The size of the largest aggregate is 10 mm. The material is characterized by a high bending tensile strength of 150 kg/sq. cm maximum. This concrete can be used especially for shell structures, thin plates- road and runway surfacings, bridge decks, beams, marine constructions, etc.
