Fiber Reinforced Concrete with Application in Civil Engineering

Description

As the most consumable building material, concrete has been generally used in the world, which has high strength, high elasticity modulus, well plasticity, and workability. The orientation of the modern civil engineering structures is high-rise, high strength, and long design lifetime, which has higher requirements on concrete. In particular, the concrete should have high toughness to prevent sudden brittle failure of the concrete structures. As a result, all kinds of fibers have been added to improve the toughness of the concrete. Researchers are targeting developments of fiber reinforced concrete (FRC) and also working on the mechanism research for special properties, preparation technology, testing methods, modeling, and applications of various fiber reinforced concretes. The development of fiber reinforced concretes will provide better materials for specific projects in civil engineering.

We invite authors to submit original research and review articles that investigate the development of fiber reinforced concretes, especially for the properties and application of fiber reinforced concretes.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Preparation technology and basic properties
  • Properties and modeling
  • Durability and sustainability
  • Fiber reinforced cementitious composites
  • Fiber reinforced high performance and ultra-high performance concrete
  • Admixtures for fiber reinforced concrete
  • Testing methods and standardization in civil engineering
  • Structural performance and modeling
  • Fresh properties and constructability
  • Testing methods and standardization in civil engineering
  • Fracture properties and flexural toughness
  • Shrinkage and creep
  • Field applications
