The research aim has been to evaluate the validity of steel fibres reinforced concrete (SFRC) as a building material to be employed in case of special loading conditions. Explosion tests have been made to check the deflagrating effect due to explosion and the possibility of using this material in the construction of bank strong-rooms or in depots of inflammable or explosive materials. The positive influence of steel fibres has been found in the reduction of splintering of concrete.
