This report outlines existing procedures for specimen preparation in general and discusses testing, workability, flexural strength, toughness, and energy absorption. Newly developed test methods are presented for the first time for impact strength and flexural toughness. The applicability of the following tests to fiber reinforced concrete (FRC) are reviewed: air content, yield, unit weight, compressive strength, splitting tensile strength, freeze-thaw resistance, shrinkage, creep, modulus of elasticity, cavitation, erosion, and abrasion resistance.-
Keywords: abrasion tests; cavitation; compression tests; cracking (fracturing); creep properties; energy absorption; erosion; fatigue (materials); fiber reinforced concretes; flexural strength: freeze-thaw durability; impact tests; modulus of elasticity; shrinkage; splitting tensile strength; tests; toughness; workability.
