Join the Australian Tunnelling Society as they present the Use of Fibre Reinforced Concrete (FRC) in Precast Segmental Tunnel Linings in Asia – Focus on QA/QC.

FRC has been used in precast segmental tunnel linings in Asia since 2005 beginning with Singapore in temporary segments. In 2012, the first permanent use of FRC in precast segmental tunnel linings finally began with Contract 933 in the Downtown Line Phase 3 in Singapore. Since then, FRC in precast segmental tunnel linings has been used for projects in Malaysia, Hong Kong, Japan and Singapore. The number of projects adopting FRC in precast segmental tunnel linings are growing. This talk will discuss three topics related to the use of FRC in precast segmental tunnel linings with a focus on QA/QC.

The session will include:

  1. Design of FRC
  2. QA/QC of FRC
  3. Durability of FRC.
