Is it appropriate to reinforce cellular concrete with steel fibers?

0

There is no chemical or mechanical reason not to reinforce cellular concrete with steel fibers. However, most cellular concrete applications require a lightweight material. Most steel fiber concrete applications require heavy, high compressive strength steel fiber reinforced concrete. It would seem somewhat unlikely that an application would require steel fiber reinforced cellular concrete, but there is no technical reason not to design a steel fiber reinforced cellular concrete.
