Effect of fiber-reinforced concrete in thin overlays ...

Cracking and debonding are important considerations for pavement maintenance because they are linked with the service life of pavement structures. Concrete overlay pavements are expected to have reduced crack widths and reduced debonding rates when the concrete mixture contains fibers. The age-dependent changes in flexural and fracture properties of fiber-reinforced concrete (FRC) between 3 ...

Thin concrete overlays are one such economic rehabilitation alternative for moderately distressed concrete and asphalt pavements. The thickness of these types of concrete overlays varies from 3-6 in. When the thickness is less than or equal to 4 in., they are referred to as ultra-thin overlays; otherwise they are known as thin concrete overlays.

Fiber reinforced concrete (FRC) is an advanced form of the reinforced concrete cast by mixtures of cement, mortar, or concrete and discontinuous, discrete, uniformly distressed suitable fibers. Many researchers prove that the addition of small, closely spaced, and uniformly dispersed fibers to concrete plays the role of cracker arrester and substantially enhance its static and dynamic properties.
