FIBER REINFORCED CONCRETE A GENERAL DISCUSSION OF FIELD PROBLEMS AND APPLICATIONS

THIS PAPER PRESENTS FIELD PROBLEMS WHICH ARE ASSOCIATED WITH THE USE OF A CONCRETE CONTAINING RANDOMLY ORIENTED UNIFORMLY DISTRIBUTED SHORT LENGTHS OF FIBERS (FIBROUS CONCRETE). MIX FORMULATION AND FIELD HANDLING CHARACTERISTICS OFTEN DETERMINE WHETHER A NEW MATERIAL IS SUITABLE FOR AN APPLICATION. ANY ALTERATIONS IN THE STANDARD PROCEDURES WILL BE REFLECTED IN DIFFERENT USES OF THE MATERIAL. THE RESULTS OF MIX FORMULATION AND FIELD HANDLING EXPERIENCE WITH THE USE OF FIBROUS CONCRETE ARE PRESENTED AND SEVERAL POSSIBLE APPLICATONS ARE DISCUSSED. /AUTHOR/
