Mitigating Impact Frailty of Concrete with Fiber Reinforcement

Abstract:

Article Preview

Since 9/11, there has been an increased interest in developing a better understanding of the properties of concrete structures under impact and blast loading. Although concrete, as a material, demonstrates extreme brittleness under dynamically applied loads, fortunately, fiber reinforcement significantly enhances such resistance. Yet, the dynamic properties of both concrete and fiber reinforced concrete (FRC) remain poorly understood. This paper provides a historical perspective of our efforts aimed at understanding the impact resistance of fiber reinforced concrete, highlights some of the issues and challenges encountered and identifies the emerging areas where further research is necessary.
