Abstract

The nylon fibre is used in variety of applications owing to its high strength, resilience and durability but its disposal pose a serious threat in environment. The use of nylon fibre in concrete hence gives good alternative to the disposal and fibres in turn impart useful characteristics to concrete. In present study, various proportions of nylon fibre are added in concrete and its effect on workability, compressive strength and tensile strength is reported.
