Fiber reinforcement for durable concrete
DURA Pro( Design Assistance Software )
Durapro is a specially designed software developed by Kasturi Metal Composites for designing slab-on grad flooring as per TR-34, ACI 360 standards. It is to help our customers to provide optimum SFRC solutions by replacing partially or completely removing REBAR.
Various Parameters are considered for designing such as sub-base properties, concrete mix design, loading conditions such as UDL point load, rack load, type of steel fiber reinforcement, slab thickness, MHE movements, load transfer reinforcement at joints and also safety factor.
How it works ?
As we know, Concrete is naturally brittle, and typical stresses like impact fatigue, loading leads to cracking, and eventually failure.
Adding steel fiber to the concrete helps it to absorb these stresses and to limit the formation of cracks, increasing the load-bearing capacity and ductility of the concrete structure.
Steel fiber is just as strong and reliable as any other concrete reinforcement because steel fiber is part of the concrete matrix, turning it into a composite material. Instead of providing strength in distinct locations, steel fibers form a 360 degree reinforcing network in the entire structure and helps to absorb tensile stresses at any point and at any direction hence increasing its overall ductility. Our Duraflex™ steel fibers conform to the ASTM A820/A820M and EN 14889:2006 part 1.
