Due to gravity, steel fibers and solid particulate matter took place subsidence during the hardening process of steel fiber-reinforced concrete, but the distributed steel fiber hindered the subsidence of the solid particles, and it played a reinforcing role, which increased the density of the steel fiber concrete and reduced the occurrence of the original microcracks.
