Members of the association represent major manufacturers, suppliers and marketers of the world’s most popular fiber reinforcement products in the concrete industry. Each of these member companies is committed to developing and increasing awareness of the most current, accurate information on fiber reinforced concrete.
A partnership with the Concrete Industry Management (CIM) Department at Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU) was established to enhance the value of FRCA to member companies and the concrete industry, and to promote fiber reinforced concrete as an alternative solution to secondary/temperature-shrinkage reinforcement of concrete and shotcrete.
Through this partnership, CIM and MTSU will perform a number of functions:
- The CIM Department will develop a repository for technical papers relating to fiber reinforced concrete
- MTSU’s Civil Engineering Department will conduct research sponsored by FRCA
- Sponsor seminars will be held annually on MTSU’s campus to further disseminate all fiber reinforced concrete related information and current research results worldwide
