An Experimental Study on Compressive Strength Behaviour of Polypropylene Fiber Reinforced Concrete

Author : Mr. Rahul G. Attarkar 1 Dr. S. P. Raut 2

Date of Publication :3rd March 2017

Abstract: The role of construction materials is dominant in construction industry to obtained satisfactory results. The conventional concrete with traditional materials is unable to achieve desired strength at optimum proportioning of materials. Incorporation of additional materials such as fibers in conventional concrete improves its properties. In this present work a Polypropylene Fiber is used in cement concrete at different fiber content to study compressive behaviour of concrete after 7 and 28 days of curing. Results showed, Incorporating polypropylene fiber in cement concrete increases compressive strength. However excess dose of fiber affects workability of concrete.
