Fibre reinforced cement-based materials are being increasingly used throughout the world, for applications which range from simple shelter structures to advanced construction engineering. This book provides a comprehensive updating on recent research and development into these materials from over 100 leading specialists from all parts of the world. Because of concern about long-term performance of fibre composites, special emphasis is given to ageing and durability. Information on newer, high performance fibres and reinforcing elements as well as the results of studies of composites made using the more established steel and glass fibres, are presented in the book. Natural fibres and wood/cellulose fibres are readily available in developing countries, and these, together with ferrocement, form important themes. Fabrication techniques, engineering properties, dynamic and structural behaviour, fracture behaviour, modelling, and applications of fibre reinforced cement and concrete and ferrocement are all covered. The book forms the Proceedings of the Fourth RILEM International Symposium on the subject, previous ones being held in London in 1975, and Sheffield in 1978 and 1986. The book will be valuable for all those involved with research into and applications of new construction materials who need to keep up to date with the latest advances in this field.
