Cracking Impact on the Serviceability Enhancement of RC Fibrous Concrete: A Review

Mahmoud Abo El-Wafa [5]

Abstract: This paper presents an elaborative discussion on the issue of cracking impact on the serviceability enhancement of RC fibrous concrete. It is proposed as an outline of the different types of fibrous concrete available and how they perform under cracking impact, thereby improving the serviceability of concrete structures. It frequently discusses practical mechanical behavior terminology that procedure a fundamentals for recognizing materials performance. Historical assessment is expected to aid in building experiences for what is currently known about RC fibrous concrete, which has a direct impact on cracking and thus improves the serviceability of concrete structures. References from both early and contemporary authors are included to help tie the issue together chronologically. However, the construction path is one of the major desirable paths for fibrous concrete globally. Because of the advantages it has over conventional construction materials, fibrous concrete is used in a wide range of building applications, from the rehabilitation of existing structures to the full-scale use of new projects. Such advantages include, but are not limited to, lightness, high mechanical performance, and the ability to manufacture in any form, ease of assembly and a reduced need for supporting structures, controlled anisotropy, high specific strength, and specific stiffness, all of which contribute to the improved serviceability of concrete structures. All of these diverse characteristics of fibrous concrete are knocking on the doors of new paths of myriad requests in the construction industry. As a result, this paper attempts to review specific areas of the current utilization trend of fibrous concrete on cracks impact for improving the serviceability of concrete structures.
