Fiber Reinforced Concrete: Present and Future

Date & Time: Wednesday Feb 14, 2024 at 2:30 pm
Duration: 50 minutes
Location: Room A
Registration: $50 plus hst


With the current challenges in today’s construction environment, including supply chain and material availability, and with limitations on available onsite workers and cost uncertainties, fiber-reinforced concrete can offer a safer and more cost-effective working environment that can decrease construction schedules and reduce the environmental impact at a project site. This presentation will address fiber types, industry examples, emerging specifications and engineering acceptance using FRC to reduce and even replace conventional reinforcement with less cracking potential, thereby increasing useable service life with historical examples dating back more than 15 years.
