Fibres are generally used as resistance of cracking and strengthening of concrete. According to various research papers, it has been found that steel fibres give the maximum strength in comparison to other fibres. Fibre reinforced concrete has been successfully used in slab, beam, shotcrete, footing, hydraulic structure, structures in seismic regions and many other applications. The main objective of this research work is to study the effect of carbon steel fibre reinforcement with different percentage of fibre 0 %, 0.5%, 1%, 1.5% and 2% by volume for M-25 grade of concrete with aspect ratio-50. The carbon steel fibre reinforced concrete will be tested for compressive strength, flexural strength and split tensile strength. The percentage increase through utilization of carbon steel fibres will be reported.
