Abstract:
This Current Practice Note is limited to a discussion of the use of fibres to reinforce Portland-cement based concretes or mortars and specifically excludes fibres used in the production of fibre cement sheeting products. In this context, the matrix to which fibres are added comprises graded aggregates (from fine sands to a combination of coarse sands and coarse aggregates), a binder (any combination of ordinary Portland cement, fly ash, slag and silica fume) and suitable admixtures.
