Glass Fibre Reinforced Concrete- Fiberglass reinforced concrete Advantages

Glass fibre reinforced concrete or GFRC is a type of fibre-reinforced concrete. These are mainly used in exterior building façade panels and as architectural precast concrete. Somewhat similar materials are fibre cement siding and cement boards. They consist of high-strength, alkali-resistant glass fibre embedded in a concrete matrix. In this form, both fibres and matrix retain their physical and chemical identities, while offering a synergistic combination of properties that cannot be achieved with either of the components acting alone.… Read More Glass Fibre Reinforced Concrete- Fiberglass reinforced concrete Advantages

PCC Concrete – Plain Cement Concrete – PCC in Construction

PCC concrete of Plain Cement Concrete (PCC) is without reinforcement steel. Plain cement concrete (PCC) is high in compression and very low in tension. Plain cement concrete is commonly used over the ground to keep footing reinforcement from coming into direct contact with the soil. What do you mean by Plain cement concrete? How to select a concrete? What are the ingredients of plain cement concrete? Work procedure for placing plain cement concrete?… Read More PCC Concrete – Plain Cement Concrete – PCC in Construction
