Abstract: Abstract: Fiber reinforced concretes have been developed and tested for years. During this development, the assessment of small discontinuous fibers has been critical in understanding the performance of these materials. Over the years, the understanding of fiber performance has been based on a single fiber pullout test. Through the years these tests have provided critical insight into individual fiber performance. This report provides insight into historical fiber performance assessments as well as introduces and explains new, novel techniques for understanding the effects of small discontinuous fibers and their performance characteristics.
