Steel fibered high strength concrete (SFHSC) is effective for repairing structures from normal strength concrete (NSC). Design of NSC structures that should be repaired is based on general concepts for design of two-layer beams, developed by the authors. Such beams are effective when their section carries large bending moments. Steel fibers increase the ultimate deformations of high strength concrete. The required ductility level of the repaired element is achieved by selecting appropriate fibers' content. This is important for design of structures to dynamic loadings. The paper is focused on interpreting the experimental data in order to find the optimal fibre content and correspondingly the highest Poisson coefficient and ductility of the repaired elements’ sections. The experimental results, obtained in the frame of this study, form a basis for provisions, related to repairing of NSC beams and slabs, using SFHSC.
