Recent advances in the field of natural and man-made fibres have led to the development of fibre reinforced cement (fibrous-cement or f.r.c) composites with flexural properties far superior to cement paste or plain concrete. . .The test results show that profiled f.r.c. sheets considerably improve the structural performance of reinforced and partially prestressed composite beams.
