Concrete that spans a distance will be under flexural stress, in which you are depending on only a small part of your concrete to handle a significant part of your load.
Concrete that flexes more, fails less.

Flexural Strength Products
XL-100 by Nycon are high-tensile macro mono-filament Polypropylene fibers specifically designed for use in concrete products for the purpose of providing shrinkage crack and thermal crack control as well as increasing tensile and flexural strength enough to replace welded wire mesh.
RECS15 by Nycon is an 8 denier, ductile mono-filament fiber used primarily to increase the flexibility and toughness of concrete. These fibers lend their 5700 ksi (40 GPa) of flexural strength to your concrete allowing it to bend where normal concrete would break. RECS15 is graphite-coated to aid in dispersion and increase strain hardening. These PVA fibers bond on a molecular level (hydrogen bonding) within concrete, creating a multi-dimensional network of it's tensile strength (240 ksi (1600 MPa) ).
