This is a recorded webinar from August 23, 2023.
This webinar is jointly sponsored by NEx: An ACI Center of Excellence for Nonmetallic Building Materials and the American Concrete Institute (ACI).
The rising costs of construction and labor shortages have sparked a growing interest in the utilization of fiber-reinforced concrete. Synthetic fibers have emerged as a durable and effective non-metallic reinforcement solution that enhances concrete performance. This presentation will provide an overview of the types of synthetic fibers, their applications, and offer practical recommendations for design and specifications. Key ACI documents related to fiber-reinforced concrete that will serve as valuable resources for practitioners involved in designing fiber-reinforced concrete elements will be highlighted.
Table of Contents
1. Identify the various types of fibers used in concrete and their specific applications.
2. Describe the mechanical properties of fiber-reinforced concrete (FRC) and the relevant test standards necessary for evaluating its performance.
3. Explain how to design with FRC, including considerations for designing slabs-on-ground, composite metal decks, and residential walls.
4. Specify fibers in construction projects.
