Abstract

This paper presents a rhetorical discussion on the subject of fiber-reinforced concrete, FRC. It is intended as an overview of the types of commercially available FRCs and how they work. It discusses commonly applied terminology and models of mechanical behavior that form a basis for understanding material performance without presenting mathematical details. Historical review is intended to help build a background for what is currently understood about FRC rather than as historical reporting. References from both early and contemporary authors are included as a means of tying the subject together along a time line.
