The following Applications and Types of Fibers for use in FRC are consistent with the searchable database found in this web-site. When using the database, it may be necessary to use ‘keywords’, as shown below, to narrow a search for a particular application. As an example, you may find stamped, colored concrete on a highway application. All of the Application types below may be constructed with the use of fiber reinforced concrete.
Potential projects suited to the use of fiber reinforced concrete are listed below. Where possible, the members of the FRCA have submitted project profiles with the use of fibers in the following applications in the “PROJECTS” section of this web-site.
