Abstract: A review of representative research on the behavior of PVA-ECC concrete under flexure and shear action. Concrete is most widely used material but its brittle behavior is one of the most serious problem. This problem can be overcome by using ECC concrete which contains PVA fibers in place of course aggregates and fly ash replacing cement partially. The various materials which are to be used are ordinary Portland cement, fly ash, PVA fiber, Sand, Superplasticizer and water. Superplasticizer is to be used to control rheological properties of fresh concrete. PVA fiber are selected because they have strong bond with the concrete matrix, strain hardening property and provide pseudo-ductility to the concrete thereby increasing flexural and shear strength. The seismic disturbance to a structure can be partially stabilized with the help of ECC concrete
