Authors(3) :-Saggu Arshdeep Singh, V. R. Panchal, Jay Bhavsar and Vatsal Patel

Concrete has gained more attention due to increased construction activities in terms of construction of buildings, highways and other special structures. It is necessary to enhance its cementitious characteristics by means of strength. It is also reasonable to produce concrete using admixtures such as Brass Coated Micro Steel fibre, Alccofine, etc. as partial replacement of cement. Alccofine based concrete will enhance properties by giving excellent resistance against corrosion as well as filling up the voids in cement. Brass Coated Micro Steel Fibre and Alccofine based Concrete will make the concrete more stable and alter its mechanical property. The experimental work is carried out on M40 grade concrete by replacing cement with 5%, 10% and 15% of Alccofine 1203 and by adding 1%, 1.5% and 2% of Brass Coated Micro Steel Fibre. From the experimental study, it is observed that the compressive strength, split tensile strength and flexural strength increase by 65.55%, 40.48% and 32.21% respectively in comparison with control mix.
