  • Testing of hybrid segmental linings through the targeted local use of high-performance steel fibre reinforced concrete in the highly stressed and vulnerable areas of the segment, combined with conventional steel or steel fibre reinforced concrete in the less stressed core area to achieve greater load-bearing capacity, stiffness, damage tolerance and durability, as well as a potential economic and environmental benefit.



  • Obtaining one-dimensional fiber orientation via a tailor-made concrete material and casting method, and its exploitation through specific structural application to maximize the advantages. A concreting device that induces fiber orientation, and a material that can maintain such orientation and develop an elasto-plastic behavior, are designed. The casting is performed along the tension stress lines obtained from structural design theory to take advantage of the anisotropic material properties.
