The idea of using steel fibres to reinforce concrete (in particular, industrial concrete floors) was conceived some 30 years ago. Gradually, the idea progressed to applications on a larger scale.
Aspects of Safety
David Quinion writes from Salisbury, adding to previous comments, most recently on 2 January, 2001:
That accident statistics on construction sites continue to be higher than in most other industries is hardly surprising to engineers who also construct such other workplaces. The working conditions on a construction site constantly change, are inherently dangerous and require constant alertness. As a contractor’s engineer, having spent many years contributing to guidance documents for safe construction, practices I offer these observations.
Roger Evans has been Bridgemaster and Engineer for the Humber Bridge ‘one of the technically most perfect suspension bridges in the world’, for the past 7 years. Prior to that he was Deputy Bridgemaster for 12 years, having previously worked for contractors and more latterly as a bridge designer in local government.
