Abstract

Sustainability is still an evolving concept, even if its main trends correlated to civil engineering have been significantly debated in the last twenty years. Model Code 2020 technical committees, still in progress, are clearly highlighting that sustainable evolution has to combine social aspects, environmental aspects and economic aspects: the rational development of advanced societies has to guarantee human resources to future human generations. According to this principle, the paper would like to show how the use of fibre reinforced concrete can respect this complex balance, improving the performance of common reinforced concrete and showing how cementitious construction materials could represent, even nowadays in many cases, the best solution of industrialized and rapidly evolving societies to their need to have efficient and updated structures and infrastructures.
