Experimental tests have been carried out on the shrinkage behavior of glass fiber reinforced concrete. Reinforcing concrete by mixing in fiber is one method for preventing cracks occurring due to drying shrinkage. The tests performed show that shrinkage strain is decreased with the increase of the fiber content. A three-dimensional finite-element analysis was carried out on samples tested in the laboratory. The analytical results produced show good agreement with those obtained from the experimental results.
