The concrete properties can be enhanced in many ways as per the requirements of it. Mainly, concrete possesses enough compressive resisting capacity but has negligible tensile strength. Moreover, the low resistance to cracking leads concrete to failure by enlarging cracks and due to low ductility the sudden failure occurs, which are not the good signs for concrete. The fibre reinforced concrete is helpful for the enhancement in terms of strength and resulting in the exceptional concrete. This research work focuses on the consideration of the basalt fibre in various percentages in concrete having a specified range for the exploratory concrete work. This research work is done to examine the effect of basalt fibre incorporation with discrete percentages such as 0%, 0.25%, 0.40% and 0.55% by weight of cement for the grade of M-25 concrete. The optimum dosage of basalt fibre concrete is carried out amongst the taken various percentages. The compressive strength test, flexural strength test and split tensile strength test was done for this research work.
