Guideline For Good Practice Of Fibre Reinforced Precast Segment - Vol. 2 : Production Aspects Featured

When producing Volume 1 of this guidance document the authors decided to initially focus on the design aspects of fibre reinforced concrete segmental tunnel linings, recognising that both segment design and production constitute equally important aspects for the success of tunnels lined with precast fibre reinforced concrete segments. Volume 2 therefore concentrates on the production of segments and the associated quality control. The advantages of using Fibre Reinforced Concrete for segments are particularly eminent in the production phase, as the absence or reduction of bar reinforcement typically results in program and cost savings, and in the reduction of risk associated with the manufacture and installation of reinforcement cages. As in Volume 1, the aim of this document is to present the common understanding of designers, manufacturers and users of fibre reinforced concrete segments of what constitutes good practice in this field of engineering. The document should be read in combination with Volume 1, which contains useful information on elementary properties of fibre reinforced concrete. ITAtech and the sub activity group welcomes all feedback on this document and will incorporate the user experience with the document in the course of future new editions.
