Fiber Reinforced Strength Concrete, Copper Wire, Steel Binding Wire


A study on M-40 grade of concrete with mix proportion 1:2.38:3.04:0.4 with water cement ratio 0.4 to analyze mechanical properties of Fiber Reinforced Concrete (FRC), where fibers are steel binding wires and copper wires having fibers of 0%, 1%, 2% and 3% volume fraction. Aspect ratio of fibers is taken as 50. An outcome information acquired is examined and related with a conventional sample (0% fiber). A relationship between % of fibers strength of concrete represented graphically. Finally, strength of concrete shows better results at 2 % fibers, further increased in % of fibers will lowers the strength of concrete.
