Concrete may be a brittle material with high strength in compression however weak in tension that reinforcement is provided. Fibers are utilized in concrete as reinforcement and strengthening part as they're effective in strengthening the concrete underneath tension similarly like standing the propagation of cracks. The influence of sisal fibers on the strength of concrete is taken because the main objective of this experimental study. The sisal fibers were supplementary in varied percentages of third, 0.5%, 1%, 1.5% and a pair of in 3 grades of concrete specifically M20, M30 and M40 and therefore the mechanical properties like compression, split tensile and flexure were tested. The optimum fiber volume fraction for compressive strength was found to be at one hundred and twenty fifth, whereas the split tensile and flexure strength improved with the rise in volume fraction of fibers. The take a look at results indicated that the sisal fibers were effective in raising the strength of concrete.
