This research has tackled the major problem in the field of sprayed fibre reinforced concrete composites, the lack of detailed design information. An extensive series of sprayed fibre concrete field trials and laboratory testing of hardened specimens was complemented by an investigation of flexural testing of cast specimens. Post-cracking toughness and ductility were examined in accordance with the current ASTM (1989a) proposals for toughness index determination. Some of the requirements of ASTM standard C1018 were shown to be impractical.
