fib Bulletin 83 published

Date: 14/03/2018

fib Bulletin 83 “Precast tunnel segments in fibre-reinforced concrete” is now available to purchase from the fib international website.

Reinforced concrete tunnels linings have mostly been traditionally cast in situ, but the development of Tunnel Boring Machines has led to the invention of precast concrete segmental lining technology, which is nowadays one of the most promising applications of Fibre Reinforced Concrete (FRC). A number of large tunnels have already been built around the World with FRC precast linings, and this report presents the experience acquired with these projects, and also provides guidance about the way to apply 2010 fib Model Code recommendations on FRC to these structures. The main drivers of this evolution from RC to FRC are better ductility, more durability, and easier fabrication and construction process.
