Abstract: This paper describes the influence of steel fibre distribution on the ultimate strength of concrete beams. The effect of delayed casting between the plain concrete and fibre concrete layers on the ultimate strength of concrete beams is also investigated. For the same amount of fibres used, strength of (partially) reinforced beams with fibres in the bottom layer only is about 25% more than that for fully reinforced beams. The presence of fibres in the compression zone does not significantly improve the beam strength. A delay in casting between the plain concrete and fibre concrete layers does not significantly change the ultimate strength of partially fibre reinforced concrete beams. © 1984.
