Abstract :

This paper presents the experimental result of flexural strength of Polypropylene fiber in concrete with natural and artificial sand. The Polypropylene fibers of aspect ratios 20, 25 and 30, with different volume fractions 0.0, 0.25, 0.5, 0.75 and 1.0% by weight of cement were used for reinforcing the concrete. Concrete mix was prepared with 100% natural sand as a normal mix and mix with optimum percentage of natural sand (35%) & artificial sand (65%) was used. For the purpose of experimentation concrete mixes were designed for M20, M30 and M40 grades. Due to incorporation of fibers, considerable improvement in flexural strength was observed.
