Abstract
The use of fibre reinforced concrete (FRC) to produce segmental linings of TBM-constructed tunnels is an increasing tendency. So far, more than 50 tunnels have been constructed with this structural material, in some of these even using solely fibres as reinforcement. Moreover, several design guidelines (e.g., fib Model Code 2010) already include the FRC as structural material. There also exist specific guidelines for the design of FRC precast segment linings (e.g., ITAtech Report/7-15 and ACI 54...
