Investigation of mechanical properties of glass fibre reinforced concrete


Glass fibre reinforced concrete (GFRC) is becoming common in the built environment due to the improved material properties, cost and mass benefits over conventional reinforcement methods. GFRC also provides a range of surface finish options which are architecturally attractive in certain applications. However, details of the performance of GFRC under load is not widely known or publicised by suppliers. This project aims to study the mechanical properties of GFRC with various mix designs and under complex loading conditions.
