Cast from fibrous concrete
mixes, the Greenleaf-certified planks and panels are stain and water resistant, low maintenance and sealed with natural oil.--Concreate LLC, North Hollywood, Calif., 855/265-2116; www.concreate.net
The modulus of elasticity is 33.2 GPa for ordinary concrete, whereas that fibrous concrete
is 34.8 GPa.

Polypropylene fibrous concrete
containing 50% copper slag exhibits an improvement in strength compared to concrete containing 30%-40% of copper slag with polypropylene fibres.
(2005) examined, through experimental studies, the flexural behaviour of corbels made of plain or fibrous concrete
with steel bars.
In case of reinforced fibrous concrete
, friction between fibers and concrete matrix and fiber yielding also contribute importantly in energy dissipation.

For each water--cementitious materials ratio (w/cm), one plain concrete (silica fume concrete) mix, and three fibrous concrete
mixes having fiber volume fractions ([V.sub.f]) of 0.5, 1.0 and 1.5 percent by volume of concrete (39, 78 and 117.5 kg/[m.sup.3]) were prepared.
The design incorporates a system of wall panels that consist of an environmentally safe, pure foam core sandwiched between two layers of fibrous concrete
, according to Celia president L.D.
