An Experimental Study on Compressive Strength of Steel Fibre Reinforced Concrete using Fibres of different Aspect Ratio

Authors(2) :-Pratik C. Sane, Dr. G. S. Doiphode

This paper deals with experimental study of compressive strength of SFRC using fibres with different aspect ratio. Fibre volume fraction was 0%, 0.5%, 1.0%, 1.5% & 2.0% of volume basis. The experiment conducted shows, that steel fibre addition to concrete improves flexural strength and drying shrinkage but decreases workability. Result data shows variation in 28 days compressive strength for M35 Grade of Concrete.
