Cellular concretes cannot be reinforced as easily as traditional ones. Generally porous materials do not ensure sufficient bond of reinforcement; additionally, due to limited amount of aggregate, interlock between aggregate particles and reinforcement ribs is not satisfactory. The idea of reinforcement presented in the paper incorporates bi-directional composite reinforcing grids placed in tensile zone of the cellular concrete slab where transverse fibres are ensuring anchorage for fibres located in the main direction of stresses. The concept is based on geotechnical applications where grids are commonly used as soil stabilization, but the grids adopted in this solution are much stronger thanks to introduction of high strength fibres as composite reinforcement.
