This book provides a comprehensive treatment covering the basic theory, properties, production, and application of a wide range of fibre cements and concretes. The subject matter is presented under the following chapter headings:-Introduction; Properties of Materials; Theoretical Principles of Fibre Reinforcement in Uniaxial Tension; Theoretical principles of fibre reinfercement in Flexure; Steel-Fibre Concrete-Properties in the Fresh State and Mix Design for Workability; Steel-Fibre Concrete-Properties in the Hardened State; Polypropylene Fibres in Concrete, Mortar, and Cement; Glass Fibres in Cement and in Concrete; Asbestos Cement; Fibres Other than Asbestos, Glass, Polypropylene and Steel; Applications of Steel, Polyprogylene, Glass and Asbestos Fibres; Steel-Fibre Concrete in Road and Airfield Pavements. Practical examples using theoretical treatment for typical real composites are appended. /Author/TRRL
