Fiber reinforced concrete
 Fiber reinforced concrete (FRC) is
concrete containing fibrous material
which increases its structural integrity.
Historical perspective

BC Horse hair.
Egyptians used straw to reinforce
mud bricks.
1900 asbestos fiber was used to reinforce clay
posts.
1960 FRC.
1970 SFRC, GFRC, PPFRC, Shotcrete.
2000+ Structural applications, Code
integration, New products.

reason of controlling reason of controlling the
crack width. crack width.
2)Deflection is lower 2)Deflection is higher

NYLON FIBRE REINFORCED
CONCRETE
ORGANIC FIBRE
REINFORCED CONCRETE
 Some examples are:

1) JUTE
2) COIR
3) CANESPLITS.
CARBON FIBRE
REINFORCED CONCRETE

 Tensile strength of 2110 to 2815 N/Sq.mm


 High modulus of Elasicity and flexural strength.
 Posses good durability.
HYBRID-FIBRE REINFORCED
CONCRETE
 Hybrid-Fibre Concrete (HFC) contains
different types of steel fibres.
 Increase the tensile strength and ductility of
the concrete elements .
 Applied amounts of fibres are relatively low,
which guarantees good workability and
economically acceptable costs of the
concrete mixtures.
STRENGTH OF FRC
 The concrete strength ranged between 80

and 100 MPa.


 post peak strength are enhanced, both in
tension and in compression.
Elastic modulus, creep, and drying
shrinkage of FRC
 Tensile creep is reduced slightly.

 Flexuralcreep can be substantially


reduced when very stiff carbon fibers
are used.

 Ithas little effect on the modulus of


elasticity, drying shrinkage, and
compressive creep.
FAILURE MODE OF FRC
Some developments in fiber
reinforced concrete
 The newly developed FRC named Engineered
Cementitious Composite (ECC) .
 It is 500 times more resistant to cracking and
40 percent lighter than traditional concrete.
 ECC can increase the ductility of concrete or
standard fiber reinforced concrete.
 ECC also has unique cracking behavior.
CURRENT DEVELOPMENT
IN FRC
 Three new developments are taking place in
FRC.They are:
1)High Fibre Volume Micro Fibre
System.
2)Slurry Infiltrated Fibre
Concrete(SIFCON).
3)Compact Reinforced Composites.
MERITS OF FIBRE REINFORCED
CONCRETE
 Lower the permeability of concrete.
 Reduce bleeding of water.
 It control plastic shrinkage cracking and drying shrinkage
cracking.
 It increase the strength of concrete.
 It reduce the flexural creep.
 It resist structures from aggressive environment, e.g. high
temperatures, ingress of chlorides and electrical fields.
DEMERITS OF FIBRE
REINFORCED CONCRETE
 Not as reliable as steel in high stress/
strain concrete members.
 Good in crack prevention, but if a crack
does form fiber is not as efficient as
controlling the crack.
Areas of Application of FRC
materials
 Thin Sheets.
 Roof Tiles.
 Pipes.
 Prefabricated shapes.
 Curtain walls.
 Precast elements.
 Impact resisting
structures.
Application of Fibre Reinforced
Concrete in Civil Infrastructure
 Repairs of existing constructions.
 Development of new constructions for long
service-life including tunnels.
 Used in many constructions subjected to
the combination of mechanical load and
impact load.
