This CD contains SP papers that were presented during a session sponsored by ACI technical committee 446 at the Spring Convention in 2012 in Phoenix, AZ. The papers focus on the implementation of fracture mechanics techniques in fiber-reinforced concrete, fiber-reinforced polymers, bonding, large structures, beam shear, pavements, and concrete deterioration. Where applicable, the papers compare modeling results with experimental tests.
