When selecting a fibre to use in hybrid RC/FRC members, there are many issues to consider in order to estimate in-service performance. This webinar examines how crack width, flexural performance, and permeability of cracks in bar-reinforced structural members are influenced by the addition of different types of fibre. Stefan also explores whether corrosion, creep, and other factors influence long term crack widths and water permeability under in-service conditions.
