Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete - Iamcivilengineer

GRC (Glass Reinforced Concrete) or GFRC (Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete) basically consists of a cementitious matrix composed of cement, sand, water, and admixtures, in which short length glass fibers are dispersed. According to Bentur and Mindess1 this dispersion will lead to an increase in the tension and impact strength of the material.

The deflection of reinforced concrete beams containing

In fiber-reinforced concrete (FRC), the bridging effect of fibers tends to reduce the crack width. 7 Thus, in R/FRC beams, reinforced by both rebar and fibers (so-called hybrid reinforcement), the limitation of crack width is easier to satisfy than in RC beams under the same service loads. 8 Also, the stiffness of FRC structures is expected to
