Composite steel decks with steel fiber reinforced concrete (SFRC) were developed, aiming to improve the durability of the deck pavement and to increase the rigidity of the deck plate in place of the steel deck with bituminous concrete. Control methods of the cracks caused by settlement or drying shrinkage have been investigated. The durability of SFRC was also clarified through the static and cyclic loading tests by use of model specimens in the laboratory and a full scale test bridge in field, prior to a practical application.
