Fibre reinforced concretefor precast applications

Applied FRC technology in Europe

The use of short, randomly oriented fibres as an additive in conventional fibre reinforced concrete (FRC) aims at improving the post-cracking behaviour of concrete similar to the effect of traditional steel reinforcement in concrete. To achieve a structurally sufficient reinforcing effect, a relatively large amount of steel or glass fibre reinforcement is typically used particularly in thinwalled structural elements, which are difficult to reinforce by traditional means due to their thin cross-sectional dimension. The addition of fibre reinforcement in thin-walled concrete elements is a technological advantage, however, due to the required amount of fibres also results in a relatively high cost of the fibre reinforced concrete composite
