Effect of fiber-reinforced concrete in thin overlays ...

Cracking and debonding are important considerations for pavement maintenance because they are linked with the service life of pavement structures. Concrete overlay pavements are expected to have reduced crack widths and reduced debonding rates when the concrete mixture contains fibers. The age-dependent changes in flexural and fracture properties of fiber-reinforced concrete (FRC) between 3 ...

Casting Thin Concrete Furniture with GFRC Concrete Decor

08-10-2013  In those early days, concrete furniture was primarily made out of precast concrete. Since it needed to be reinforced with steel, the concrete tended to be thick, massive and heavy. This made large, thin and delicate pieces impractical or impossible. The current trend towards using glass-fiber reinforced concrete (GFRC) has changed that.
