Steel fiber are mixed into the concrete can provide an alternative to the provision of conventional steel bars or welded fabric in some applications. Steel fiber are used where control of crack propagation are most prominent in design Steel fiber exhibits better matrix anchorage at high deformations and large crack widths, longer, heavily deformed fiber afford better post-crack strength. Steel fiber transforms a brittle material into a more ductile one. It offers various advantages such as reduced spalling joint edges, stronger joints, high impact resistance, greater fatigue endurance, reduced maintenance costs, and longer useful working life. Steel fibers provide optimal load bearing, superior crack control, high fatigue resistance, and excellent impact resistance.
