Fiber Reinforced Concrete - Types, Properties and Advantages

The typical aspect ratio ranges from 30 to 150. Fiber-reinforced concrete (FRC) is concrete containing fibrous material which increases its structural integrity. It contains short discrete fibers that are uniformly distributed and randomly oriented. Fibers include steel fibers, glass fibers, synthetic fibers, and natural fibers.
