Field experiments designed to evaluate the suitability and effectiveness of steel fibrous concrete as on overlay material for bridge decks, highway pavements, and airfield pavements have been carried out and others are planned. Although it will require many years before a complete assessment can be made of the performance of the experimental fibrous concrete overlays, the initial experiences and results have been encouraging.
