Abstract :

Fiber Reinforced Concrete (FRC) is a new structural material which is gaining increasing importance. Concrete is weak in tension and has a brittle character. Early applications include addition of Straw to mud bricks, horse hair to reinforce plaster and asbestos to reinforce pottery. Use of continuous reinforcement in concrete (reinforced concrete) increases strength and ductility, but requires careful placement and labor skills. Alternatively, introduction of fibers in discrete form in plain or reinforced concrete may provide a better solution. Addition of fibers to concrete makes it a homogeneous and isotropic material. When concrete cracks, the randomly oriented fibers start functioning, arrest crack formation and propagation, and thus improve strength and ductility. The failure modes of FRC are either bond failure between fiber and matrix or material failure.This study focuses on comparison of compressive strengths of Ordinary Portland Cement Concrete with Fiber Reinforced Concrete. For the study the test we have conducted are concrete compressive strength test and slump test of concrete. By using M20 grade of cement and the fibers we used are steel fiber and glass fiber, after comparing different results of samples tested, the 7days compressive strength of Ordinary Portland Cement Concrete is 19.81N/mm2, 7days compressive strength of Steel Fiber Reinforced Concrete is 20.38N/mm2 and 7days compressive strength of Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete is 21.81n/mm2. The results were found after experimentation done on sample in concrete laboratory at Ultra Tech ready mix plant.
