The use of fiber reinforced concrete is growing rapidly in tunnel lining applications. In this industry, shotcrete is applied to help stabilize weak rock walls or grounds, fill in cracks, and provide a smooth finish. The application growth is attributed to the efficiency and cost-effectiveness that fiber reinforced concrete provides. Prior to the introduction of fiber reinforcement, tunnel lining applications required time and labor intensive placement of wire mesh or rebar lining and precast panels, which were prone to fitting rejections, before the concrete can be placed.
