Fiber-reinforced concrete FRC in North America is emerging from the laboratory and is finding many potential applications. Steel, glass, and plastic fibers are being used in mortars and concretes to improve the characteristics of these materials, particularly the flexural and impact strengths. Steel-FRC is being used mostly for pavement overlays. Glass-fiber-reinforced cements are being used in architectural products. Plastic-fiber-reinforced products are being used for improved spall and impact resistance. The applications of FRC are limited only by the ingenuity of the user. Author
