Abstract:
The paper will review durability data for glass fiber reinforced concrete (GFRC), both accelerated aging and real time data. It will compare real time data with predicted data from accelerated aging tests and describe the design principles that have been established for GFRC based on this durability data. Applications over 20 years old will be reviewed.
