Improvement in the Crack Opening Resistance of FRC with Low Short Fibre Content

This paper describes how the use of fiber reinforced concrete (FRC) with low content of short fibers is very interesting for many applications. One of such can be slab, designed for cracked stage, and further propagation of cracks can be reduced, significantly with the use of such FRC. Applications of steel and polypropylene fiber reinforced concrete (SPFRC) with low content of short fibers confirm these predictions. Some results of preliminary investigations of SPFRC with low content of short fibers are discussed in this paper.
