This is a recorded webinar from May 7, 2019.
ACI 544.4R-18: “Guide for Design with Fiber-Reinforced Concrete” is a recent publication with state-of-the-art information on concrete fibers. This course will review the properties of fiber-reinforced concrete (FRC) and the related ACI guides on design, specification and practice. The new developments in the materials technology and the addition of field experience have expanded the applications of FRC. Fibers are made with different materials and can provide different levels of crack control and tensile/flexural capacity for a concrete section, depending on the type, dosage, and performance. Standard tests are used for characterizing the performance of FRC and the results are used for design in various non-structural and structural applications. Some of the applications of FRC include slabs-on-ground, slabs-on-pile, topping slabs, structural connections, precast segments and shotcrete.
Table of Contents
1. Recognize various fibers types and their effects on FRC performance.
2. Explain how FRC design (flexure, shear, hybrid) is based on the performance of the composite material and not individual fibers.
3. Identify structural and non-structural FRC applications.
4. Summarize strategies for specifying and practicing FRC.
