What quantity of STABILS steel fibers is required to replace a given mesh reinforcement?

How much STABILS steel fiber must be used to achieve the same effect as with a given mesh reinforcement?

It is not easy to give a definite answer to this question, since both the strength of the elements and the type of loading (tension, bending, etc.) play a role.

However, if structural reinforcement is available, reinforced concrete can be converted into steel fiber concrete. Unlike conventional reinforced concrete, where the reinforcing steel and the concrete have separate resistances, steel fiber concrete is a composite material where corresponding compressive and tensile strengths are assigned. This allows for greater strength and load-bearing capacity of the material.
