Cement Concrete, Jute Fibre, Tensile Strength


As concrete is weak in tension and has brittle character. The concept of using fibers to improve the characteristics of construction materials is very old. Introduction of fibers in disconnected form may provide a solution for the lack of tensile strength in plane and reinforced concrete. The function of randomly oriented fibers is to arrest crack formation and propagation, and thus improving the strength and ductility. As India is one of the largest producers of jute, hence its potential application in many branches of engineering should be developed. The current paper deals with subject of addition of natural fibers to concrete in order to study the strength properties and also to observe if there is reduction in propagation of shrinkage crack problems.
