Do you need wire mesh in fiber concrete?

Also know, is wire mesh needed in concrete?
And yes, mesh is important: Concrete is strong in compression, but not under tension. So, if it flexes, like a slab with a vehicle on top of will do, it cracks at the bottom whre the flexing becomes tension. Steel mesh will prevent this to a large degree and hold it all together.
Furthermore, is fiber mesh concrete good? The fiber mesh strengthens the concrete and the steel rebar reinforces the extra load areas. Fiber mesh can adversely affect the finish depending on whether you want a swirl finish, boom finish or exposed aggregate stone finish. The fiber mesh is good stuff but can stick up above the concrete surface and look fuzzy.
One may also ask, does concrete with fiber need rebar?
Fiber concrete still needs reinforcements with rebar.
Is fiber mesh better than rebar?
Fibermesh is a lower cost, labor-saving option for concrete reinforcement. Unlike rebar which must be set precisely before concrete can be poured, Fibermesh pours with the concrete saving time, as well.
