Abstract

This research paper discusses the comparative study between coconut fibre concrete with plain cement concrete of M40 grade. This research paper deals use of the agricultural waste material into concrete, which enhanced the properties of concrete and makes environment eco-friendly. The coconut fibres are added additionally by weight of cement in the proportions of 0, 1, 1.5, 2 2.5, 3%. The diameter and length of coconut fibre is taken 0.4 mm and 40 mm respectively. The results show increment in compressive strength and decrement in workability of concrete by adding coconut fibre into concrete.
