GFRC - Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete - Concrete Network

The material used to make boats or other products, although called fiberglass, is really glass fiber reinforced plastic-glass fibers in a polymer matrix. If, instead of the polymer, we use portland cement and sand, the resulting material is glass fiber reinforced concrete--GFRC or sometimes GRC (the Brits call it glassfibre reinforced concrete).

Experimental Study of Steel-fiber Reinforced Concrete

The concrete mix used a 0.6% of superplasticizer to the cement weight to enhance the workability of the mix, and to improve the homogeneous distribution of fibers. The concrete mix was ordered from a ready mix plant, and upon arrival at the casting scene, the fibers were added manually.

Synthetic Fibers for Concrete - Nevada Ready Mix

Synthetic fibers specifically engineered for concrete are manufactured from man-made materials that can withstand the long-term alkaline environment of concrete. Synthetic fibers are added to concrete before or during the mixing operation. The use of synthetic fibers at typical addition rates does not require any mix design changes.

Compressive Strength of Fiber Reinforced Concrete With Fly Ash

The optimum value of fly-ash replacement and volume fraction of fibers in concrete mix was found to be 6% and 1.25% respectively. Stiffness of nearly all the cubes was increased due to fly-ash and fiber addition in concrete mix. Post-cracking strength of all the cubes increased significantly.

The concrete mix was proportioned to achieve a minimum compressive strength of 32 MPa on the 28th day with slump of 80 mm. To ensure the required slump, a slump test was done upon delivery of the concrete prior to beams casting and it confirmed the 80 mm slump. Batch proportions of concrete mix are given in Table 1.

Mechanical Properties of Hybrid Basalt-Polyvinyl Alcohol

This study focuses on the study of the mechanical behavior of non-metallic hybrid Basalt-PVA fiber reinforced concrete. Total five mixes were investigated with one control plain concrete and four with fiber volume fraction of 0.3%, 0.6%, 0.9% and 1.2%. Basalt and PVA were used in same quantity. Fiber decreased workability, therefore superplasticizer was used to maintain workability constant.
