Opportunities for synthetic fibre reinforcement in concrete structures

13th Central European Congress on Concrete Engineering: Next Generation of Concrete Engineering for Post-Pandemic Europe

In the past decade macro synthetic fibre reinforcement has become widely used in concrete structures, such as tramlines, tunnels and industrial floors. By using synthetic fibres as reinforcement in concrete structures, the casting time and labour work will decrease, while the ductility will increase. In addition, the durability will also be higher when using synthetic fibres, while the carbon footprint is much less compared to steel fibre reinforcement.
