Subjectfibre reinforced concrete; application; Concrete
AbstractConcrete lends itself to a variety of innovative designs as a result of its many desirable properties. Two characteristics, however, have limited its use: it is brittle and weak in tension. Recent developments in fibre- reinforced composites in the plastics and aerospace fields have provided a technical basis for eliminating these deficiencies. This digest describes the general properties and application of fibre-reinforced concrete used in construction.
