Abstract
The use of structural fibre as replacement of the traditional reinforcement in precast concrete segmental linings is a widespread practice. As a matter of fact, more than forty examples of application in tunnels and vertical shafts can be cited. The success of using fibres in this structural elements lies in the mechanical improvements (reduction of the crack width, increasing of the toughness, among others) as well as in economic reasons (reduction of the labour force as well as of the producti...
