Abstract

Concrete plays vital role as a construction material in the world. But the use of concrete as a structural material is limited to certain extent by deficiencies like brittleness, poor tensile strength and poor resistance to impact strength, fatigue, low ductility, and low durability. This is obviously not desirable for any construction material. Thus, concrete requires some form of tensile reinforcement to compensate its brittle behavior and improve its tensile strength and strain capacity to be used in structural applications. In the present scenario the fiber reinforced concrete is not put into use in the construction as for the disadvantages it has got. To overcome the disadvantages and take the profit of its advantages certain experiments are performed to know the characteristics of the FRC. The FRC can give more strength to the building and come overcome the problem of the brittleness caused by the plain concrete. Fiber Reinforced Concrete (FRC) is defined as a composite material essentially consisting of conventional concrete or mortar reinforced by the random dispersal of short, discontinuous, and discrete fine fibers of specific geometry. Fibers are commercially available and manufactured from steel, plastic, glass and other natural materials. This paper presents an overview of the properties of Fiber Reinforced Concrete (FRC), its advantages, its disadvantages, and its applications.
