Experimental Study of Steel Fibers Reinforced Concrete over Conventional Concrete

Abstract: paper suggests the experimental study of fiber reinforced concrete using M20 grade concrete over conventional concrete. 0.5%, 1% of fiber was used to prepare the reference mix. Comparison of experimental results has been carried out. The basic parameters taken for comparison are Workability, Compressive strength, Spilt Tensile test, Flexural Strengths over 7 days, and 28 days. Steel fiber reinforced concrete is very effective in repair works such as Leakage, seepage etc. It is also a better solution to minimize cavitation /erosion damage in structures such as navigational locks, sluice-ways, and bridge piers where high velocity flows are encountered. Saving of substantial amount of weight can be done by using SFRC by providing thin sections having the equivalent strength over plain concrete sections
