Four applications of fiber-reinforced concrete in hydraulic structures are reviewed. Included are repairs to sluicways, spillways, and spillway aprons associated with dams, and also the construction of breakwater armor units. The use of fiber-reinforced concrete in these structures appears to improve cavitation and erosion resistance, and impact strength.
