Ayman G. Abdel-Rhaman | Faiz A. M. Mirza | Abdulrahman A. Salah
Abstract: This paper focuses on the state-of-the-art research that has been done on Fiber-Reinforced Concrete (FRC) that are currently used in different applications to improve the concrete performance and provide new solution for concrete common problems. FRC is continually developed and many researches regarding to the enhancement of the concrete performance and strength. The past few years, concrete is considered as the most consumed construction material and the need of the properties development is necessary to mitigate the common problems of concrete. Different types of fibers will be described and discussed in this paper in addition to comparing the different types regarding to their efficiency, workability and cost. Furthermore, the structural behavior and mechanical of different types of FRC are going to be discussed and investigated as well as the FRC mixture components and placing methods. The various applications of FRC and current practices in the field of concrete industry prove the efficiency of FRC, but with considering the cost and high quality level of implementation.
