Original Abstract

Concrete can be modified by a number of admixtures that can considerably improve its mechanical properties. Low tensile strength of concrete can be increased by inserting metal wires into its structure that hold such tensile tensions to a certain extent. Designing and production of fibre-concrete with suitable properties are already a common practice. However, additional inspections have often proven that the distribution of wires is not optimal and therefore not each positive feature of fibre-concrete can be utilized, especially in constructional concrete applications.
