ØSIFCON is a special type of fiber reinforced composite containing steel fiber from 5% to 20% (by volume).
ØIn this formwork molds are filled to capacity with randomly-oriented steel fiber, usually in loose condition and resulting fiber network is infiltrated by a cement-based slurry.
ØThe amount fibers required for composite is depends on aspect ratio, fiber geometry and placement technique.
ØIf the fiber are aligned along the diameter of cylinder, a much higher strength can be expected to the cylinder in which fibers are aligned along the axis of the cylinder.
