It is generally accepted that ductility is the main characteristic of SFRS. Tests on scale 1/1 have been conducted to determine the influence of ductility on the bearing capacity and crack resistance of Steel fibre reinforced shotcrete under loading conditions. Based on these conclusions a new slab test has been developed in France for SFRS in order to prepare performance specifications and to evaluate the influence of different fibre types and dosages.
