Advanced High Strength Natural Fibre Composites in Construction | Natural fibre cement composites |
In this chapter, structural composition and chemical structures of natural fibres are presented. The advantages of natural fibre over traditional reinforcing materials are listed. Reasons for the introduction of fibres into cement composite and application in construction were explained. Information about improving the durability of the fibres in reinforced concrete as well as the structural composition were mentioned.
