Abstract : This report documents Phase II of a three phase effort to develop fiber and rebar reinforced concrete beam designs and associated design methods that can be used in the construction of hardened structures to increase their survivability, while reducing their cost and weight. In particular, this work will benefit bare base modular, prefabricated, rapidly erectable hardened structures where weight saving and increased material toughness are critical issues.
