This CD contains 8 papers from sessions sponsored by ACI technical committees 544, 549, and 130 at the Fall 2012 ACI Convention in Toronto and two technical sessions at the Fall 2013 ACI Convention in Phoenix. The topics of the papers cover sustainability aspects of using fiber reinforced concrete ranging from durability and interface mechanisms of natural fiber reinforced concrete (FRC), evaluation of eco-mechanical performance of FRC, reducing carbon dioxide emissions of concrete, as well as applications of fiber reinforcement for self-consolidating concrete, bridge link slabs, extruded prefabricated elements, slab systems and fabric-reinforced cementitious matrix systems for strengthening unreinforced masonry walls.
