SP105 Leading edge design requires leading edge technology. "Fiber Reinforced Concrete Properties and Applications," provides the knowledge you need to design and build state-of-the-art concrete structures. Fiber reinforced concrete can be used in a wide variety of applications. With fibers being made of steel, glass, or polymer they can be added to the concrete mix in a variety of ways. Added to concrete in a ready-mix truck, cast in a conventional manner, or sprayed along with mortar slurry to form thin precast panels, new fibers, methods of manufacture, fabricating, and applications are being pioneered all of the time. "Fiber Reinforced Concrete Properties and Applications," a collection of 29 papers, is divided into five main sections: fracture and mechanical properties, polymer and glass fiber reinforced concrete, steel fiber reinforced concrete, pavements, and structural behavior. Topics such as: failure mechanisms and fracture of fiber reinforced concrete, fiber reinforced soil-cement, creep of concrete containing fibers and silica fume, development of lightweight durable fiberglass-reinforced concrete, flexural fatigue strength of steel fiber reinforced concrete, steel fiber reinforced heat resistant pavement, and flexural behavior and design of reinforced fiber concrete members are presented in great detail.
