Subject: RE: Wire reinforcement in salbs on ground

The concrete operator asked how
many fibres were to be added and my friend said some-
thing like 3 bags per cubic metre, where-upon the
operator went and threw three bags of fibres in, still
in their plastic sacks.  I was laughing so hard I
couldn't say anything to the operator.

At the risk of sounding *nuts*...

...do I not recall correctly that back in the 80s, when "Fibermesh" was
puttin' the moves on the concrete industry in a bid to become THE method
for crack control of concrete, that they specifically said you could
just throw the bag in?

I'm getting' old, and slow, and stupid, but I could swear that was true.
