This report provides a synopsis of the existing testing methodologies for the determination of mechanical properties of hardened fiber-reinforced concrete (FRC). This report applies to the mechanical properties of conventionally mixed and placed FRC, including fiber-reinforced self-consolidating concrete (FRSCC), or fiber-reinforced shotcrete (FRS) using steel, glass, polymeric, and natural fibers.
The objective is to enable manufacturers to characterize the mechanical properties of hardened FRC and encourage researchers and testing laboratories to adopt common and unified test methods to build a meaningful database of mechanical properties of hardened FRC materials and products. Test results from the test procedures used in this report are not intended for the design of FRC structures, but to gain a better understanding of factors influencing the determination of their mechanical properties and of FRCs and FRC products.
