Abstract :

Concrete is most widely used construction concrete (FRC) is a concrete in which small and discontinuous fibers are dispersed uniformly. The addition of Glass fibres can dramatically increase/decrease the compressive strength, tensile strength and flexural strength of concrete. In this paper effect of glass fibres on the strength of RC concrete for M25 grade have been studied by varying the percentages of glass fibres in concrete. 0%, 1.5% and 2% volume fraction of glass fibres of weight of cement were u Keywords: Fibre Reinforced Concrete, Flexural Strength, Glass Fibre, fly ash,admixture. Concrete is the most widely used construction material has several desirable properties like high compressive strength, stiffness and durability under usual environmental factors. time concrete is brittle and weak in tension. Plain concrete has two deficiencies, low tensile strength and a low strain at fracture. These shortcomings are generally overcome by we can define Glass fibre reinforced concrete as a composite material of cement concrete or mortar and discontinuous discrete and uniformly mass can dramatically increase/slidly decrease strength and impact strength of concrete. Following points emerged from a literature review: 1. The tests conducted on GFRC in laboratory have shown good use of GFRCs is for architectural building panels. In these buildings, fire resistance becomes an important factor in design. 2. When cement, mortar or concrete is splashed or otherwise brought into contact with window glass, etching occurs. This is because the alkali in cement attacks some of the silicates that are used in glass manufacture. The stock used in making glass fibers has better alkali resistance than window glass because zirconium is used as one of the const 3. Tests on telecommunication towers by using GRC with carbon fibre and/or stainless steel bars have shown that GRC can be used as structural material, with reduced weight and has good durability properties.
