Fiber reinforced concrete is concrete made primarily of hydraulic cements, aggregates, and discrete reinforcing fibers. This definition does not include a provision for concretes reinforced with continuous meshes, woven fabrics, or continuous fiber networks. To address all potential types of fiber reinforced concrete, ACI has produced "Fiber Reinforced Concrete Developments and Innovations." Fifteen papers address: - Comparison of Shrinkage Cracking Performance of Different Types of Fibers and Wiremesh - The Effect of Low Addition Rates of Polypropylene Fibers on Plastic Shrinkage Cracking and Mechanical Properties of Concrete - Toughness of Slurry Infiltrated Fibrous Concrete (SIFCON) - Tensile and Compressive Strengths of Polypropylene Fiber Reinforced Concrete - Durability Characteristics of Cellulose Fiber Reinforced Cement Composites - Carbon Fiber Reinforced Cements: Structures, Performance, Applications and Research Needs - Flexural Behavior of Carbon Fiber Reinforced Cement Composite - Shear Capacity of Fiber Reinforced Concrete Based on Plasticity of Concretes: A Review - Influence of Test Control on the Load-Deflection Behavior of FRC - Shear Behavior of Laboratory-Sized High Strength Concrete Beams Reinforced with Bars and Steel Fibers - Behavior of Fiber Reinforced High Strength Concrete Under Direct Shear - Ultra High Performance Reinforced Concrete - Constitutive Modeling of Fiber Reinforced Concrete - Analytical Deflection Evaluation of Partially Prestressed Fiber Reinforced Concrete Beams - Dynamic Tension Fatigue Performance of Fibrous Concrete Composites
