Governing the dispersion and the orientation of fibres in concrete through a suitably balanced set of fresh state properties and a carefully designed casting procedure, is a feasible and cost-effective way to achieve a superior mechanical performance of fibre reinforced cementitious composites, which may be required by the intended application, even keeping the fibre content at relatively low values (e.g. around 1% by volume). In this paper the possibility of pursuing the above said “integrated” approach has been addressed in the framework of larger project focused on developing a deflection-hardening FRCC (DHFRCC), reinforced with 100 kg/m3 (1.27% by volume) of short steel fibres (13 mm long and 0.16 mm in diameter). The material has to be employed to manufacture thin (30 mm) roof elements, without any kind of conventional reinforcement, which have been anticipated to work, as simply supported beams, over a 2.5 m span. The study hence paves the way to the possibility of exploiting at an industrial level the correlation among fresh state performance, fibre dispersion and hardened state properties of self consolidating steel fibre reinforced concrete to achieve enhanced structural performance tailored to the specific application.
