Abstract

Sisal fiber is an alternative class of fiber which can be used in concrete. The sisal fiber is prepared form plants and fibers have good mechanical properties. In present study, sisal fiber is mixed in different quantities to produce sisal fiber reinforced concrete. The effect of proportions of sisal fiber in concrete is studied by conducting experimental tests on slump value, compressive strength and flexural strength.
