The work is a result of the investigation of steel fiber reinforced concrete as a material for slipformed tunnel liners, and interest in designing the best concrete for this purpose. With the development of commercial deformed fibers, it became apparent that a comparison of the behavior of concretes reinforced with various types of steel fibers would be useful in evaluation of these new materials. These comparisons may be of specific interest in selecting mixes and equipment for concrete tunnel liners, and of general interest with respect to development of fibrous reinforcement with different anchorage characteristics.
