Abstract In the 1940’s, potential of glass as a construction material was realized and improvement continued with the addition of zirconium dioxide in 1960's for harsh alkali conditions. The development of new glass fibre generations is focused on improving the process of material durability. In order to meet various needs, glass fibre reinforced concrete, or GFRC, was thus introduced into production. Research and experiments conducted on GFRC have demonstrated that the material quality and production precision have an impact on the material's mechanical and physical characteristics. GFRC can be applied anywhere an impermeable, weather-resistant, fire-resistant, light-weight, and robust material is required. With the development of technology, it may be possible to construct sophisticated freeform structures and entire buildings at a reasonable cost. Recently, research has been done on the impact of glass fibres in hybrid mixtures for high-performance concrete (HPC), a newly developed technology that is gaining popularity in the building sector.
