A macrofiber software tool and accompanying documentation has been developed to assist pavement engineers in designing concrete overlays with fiber reinforced concrete. This webinar will provide an overview of the macrofiber software for determining the recommended fiber reinforced concrete residual strength values for application to concrete overlay design. In particular, the inputs and factors affecting the required fiber reinforced concrete content will be discussed, as well as integration of the calculated residual strength with the existing concrete pavement overlay design methods. Finally, guidance will be provided on how specifications can be adapted to include macrofibers in concrete overlays in order to make sure the designer’s intentions for the fiber reinforced concrete are met in the construction phase.
