    Abstract

    This paper presents experimental tests carried out on steel fibre reinforced concrete samples, including mechanical tests as well as non-destructive technique (electrical resistivity) and non destructive technique on cores (X-ray). Electrical resistivity measurements are done as a blind test, to characterise the electrical anisotropy and deduce the distribution and the orientation of fibres. These results are compared to X-ray imaging to check the quality of the non destructive evaluation. Then, flexural and compressive strength are measured on specimens to assess the influence of fibre distribution on the concrete properties.
