Advances in computing have allowed for the development of high performance concretes mathematically. We develop a method which combines the generalized self consistent model together with the boundary element method and the statistical averaging procedure to study the multiple scattering of plane elastic waves in concrete containing randomly distributed parallel fibers. In analysis, the concrete matrix is modeled by dispersed aggregate structure. The physical properties for a fiber-reinforced concrete are obtained numerically and shown in graphs for various microstructures at designated frequencies.
