Fibrous concrete (FRC) made with synthetic fibers has been shown to be a cost-effective treatment for improving certain strength, toughness, and crack-resistance properties of otherwise brittle portland cement concrete (PCC). Three types of synthetic fiber are used in this study to demonstrate a test procedure for quantifying the effect of the fiber addition on both shrinkage and crack control, and are compared to nonfibrous control samples. The benefits resulting from the use of synthetic fibers are shown.
