Carbon Fibre Reinforced Concrete ( CFRC )
Carbon fibres are the smart materials that are useful in the structural applications. The carbon filaments are bundle of many thousand carbon filaments which are made of pure carbon in the form of graphite these materials are distinguished by their extremely high strength and rigidity which is the most important requirement in the structural constructions also they are exceptionally durable, high resistant to corrosion, low density, excellent damping properties with a high resistance to impacts. The use of carbon fibres in construction has become a reality and many applications have been reported so far. The electrical conductivity of these carbon fibres is also interesting because the conductivity of concrete increases drastically when it is reinforced with such fibres so that they help in the cathodic protection of degraded structures.
