SCIA Engineer 18 - Fibre Reinforced Concrete

Webinar date: 
Thu 13 September 2018 - 15:00 to 16:00 CEST

Explore the new smart and sophisticated solution for the design and calculation of steel fibre reinforced concrete we co-created with Bekaert, the leading global wire producer.

SCIA Engineer 18 - Fibre Reinforced ConcreteToday, about 1 in 3 square meters of industrial floors in Europe are designed with steel fibre reinforced concrete and the demand to use the material will continue to rise. The material will be included in Eurocode 2020. And you can already start using it now!

In the webinar, our product manager Marwan Al-Taie will walk you through the applications of steel fibre reinforced concrete and its influence on the structural behaviour. He will also explore with you how you can design concrete floor reinforcement using steel fibre in SCIA Engineer and what its advantages are.

In the webinar you will learn how to:

  • Design and optimize the required amount of fibres based on ULS capacity
  • Carry out ULS and SLS checks
  • Select the proper stress-strain diagram for the material
  • Perform linear and nonlinear calculation with real material behaviour simulation to predict the cracking stages
  • and more...
