Fibers have an excellent potential to improve the mechanical properties of rapid-setting materials, and could be usd effectively to improve the performance of repairs. Steel fiber reinforced rapid-setting concrete is discussed. Three fiber geometries, four fiber volume fractions, five fiber lengths, and two beam sizes were used to evaluate flexural strength, flexural ductility, compressive strength, and stress-strain behavior in compression. The details of the study and its results are presented. Polymer-fiber reinforced rapid-setting concrete is discussed, and it is noted that test results in this area are very limited. The investigations indicate that the behavior of fiber-reinforced rapid-setting materials is similar to that of normal portland cement fiber-reinforced concrete.
