Corrosion of steel reinforced concrete results in unsafe structures and significant economic costs. This project investigated using polymer, steel, and glass fibers in concrete to reduce corrosion by decreasing the permeability of concrete, which is the first line of defense against corrosion. The results suggested that polymer fibers resulted in high corrosion resistance, glass fibers increased flexural strength, and steel fibers improved yield strength but reduced fire resistance.
