Brief description This project will develop new spiral-shaped steel fibres to be added in concrete to improve its strength, toughness, crack bridging, deformation and impact resistance capacities. It will create better concrete material for wide applications in construction to resist extreme loading conditions such as explosions and high-speed impacts.
