Abstract: Concrete possesses a very low tensile strength, limited ductility and little resistance to cracking by adding glass fibres into concrete can dramatically increases tensile strength and also compressive strength. Glass fibre reinforced concrete will shows considerable improvement in durability when compared to conventional concrete. We can also use plasticizer as “GELENIUM SKY 8234” to reduce water content and increases workability. The main aim of this study is to compare the test results between conventional concrete and glass fibre reinforced concrete. In this study concrete mix design is done for M30 grade concrete. The strength results were compared by addition glass fibres in concrete mixture of different proportions 0%, 0.5% and 1% by weight of cement, the cubes are prepared for different sizes of 150mm X 150mm X 150mm for compression and 100mm X 100mm X 100mm for tension. The curing will be done for 7, 28 days. Finally the strength performance of glass fibred reinforced concrete is compared with normal concrete.
