This book presents the latest research development on fibre reinforced cementitious materials, especially those related to ageing and durability. The book forms the Proceedings of the International Symposium held at Sheffield in July 1992, the latest in a series of RILEM symposia on this subject, organised by RILEM Technical Committee 102-AFC Ageing and Durability to Fibre Cement Composites.
