Fibers and their Properties for Concrete Reinforcement
The necessary fiber content in the first place is determined by the requirements of bending strength and resistance to dynamic loads. The fiber content depends on the composition and consistency of concrete, fiber properties and mixing techniques. The most widespread types of fibers, their advantages and disadvantages, possible areas of their application are considered. Fibers whose modulus of elasticity is greater than the modulus of elasticity of a concrete matrix, such as steel fibers or glass fibers, increase the workload on the cracks.
