Fiber-Reinforced Cementitious Composites
To overcome the brittleness of concrete, fiber-reinforced cementitious composites (FRCCs) with a high ductility have been developed worldwide. Several types of FRCCs, containing fibers made of metal, polymer, carbon, glass, nylon, etc., were successfully developed and applied for building structures to limit crack propagation and widening through fiber bridging. Furthermore, (ultra-)high-performance FRCCs that demonstrated strain-hardening behavior with multiple microcracks were recently invented, and numerous relevant studies are actively underway.
This topic covers a comprehensive overview on FRCCs, related to material properties of fresh and hardened states and structural implications under various loading conditions.
Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:
- Fiber-reinforced cementitious composites;
- (Ultra-)high-performance fiber-reinforced cementitious composites;
- Chemical and physical treatments of fibers;
- Mechanical properties;
- Impact and blast resistance;
- Numerical modeling;
- Fire resistance;
- Structural implications;
- Fiber distribution characteristics;
- Recycled fibers.
