Fiber Reinforced Concrete Seminar report, abstract

Fiber Reinforced Concrete, an introduction
The concrete, which has fibrous materials in it are called fiber reinforced concrete. The structural integrity increases. Fibers which are short discrete are distributed uniformly. The orientations of these fibers are random. There are many fibers such as synthetic fibers, natural fibers, steel fibers, glass fibers. The properties of these fibers vary within the concrete. It is seen that the characteristics of fiber reinforced concrete changes with the change in concretes, its orientation and geometries. Crack occurs in the concrete due to plastic shrinkage. Fibers are added in concrete to avoid these cracking. It is wrong notion that fibers increase the strength of concrete. Sometimes opposite may happen. The permeability of the concrete is reduced and finally reducing the bleeding of the water.

These fibers have many benefits. Steel fibers can improve the structural strength to reduce in the steel reinforcement requirement. Freeze thaw resistance of the concrete is improved. Durability of the concrete is improved to reduce in the crack widths. Polypropylene and Nylon fibers are used to improve the impact resistance. Many developments have been made in the fiber reinforced concrete. A new kind of fiber reinforced concrete is developed which is made from cellulose fibers. Waste carpet fibers are also used.

We prepared and published this seminar abstract for final year engineering students seminar research. You should do your own research additional to this information before presenting your seminar.
