Concrete is one of the primary materials in a variety of studies in the building industry. In order
to increase its properties such as workability, strength, durability and other applications, as well
as to reduce production costs, alternatives in concrete are also required in civil technology.
Containing the fibrous content, fiber-reinforced concrete (FRC) increases the structural strength
of this material. It comprises small, equal sized and randomly-oriented discrete fibres. Fibers
include steel, glass fibres, synthetic and natural fibres, each with a range of properties.
Furthermore, fiber-reinforced concrete change characteristics with various concretes, fibre
materials, geometry, distribution, orientation and permeability. In shotcrete, fibre-reinforcement
is used especially but can also be used in regular concrete. Normal fibre reinforced concrete is
used mainly for ground floors and floors but can be used for a wide variety of construction
sections.
