In the past 10 years or so, concrete reinforced with fibers one or two inches long has begun to be used, first on a demonstration and experimental basis, then in major everyday applications. This article cites landmark or pioneer case histories of use in these areas: dam spillways; tunnels; open rock slopes; airfield pavements; shore protection; refractories; building wall panels; structural and curtainwall; roofs of dome and barrel-arch shape; slabs on grade; and other. A few key documents providing design aids are cited, as are the names and addresses of five suppliers of fibers.
