Nowadays, a significant amount of concrete is used in the building industry. Concrete offers better resistance under pressure than steel does when it is stressed. A low effect, a scraped surface, limited malleability, and little break protection are all characteristics of regular cement. To improve the conductivity of plain concrete both before and after it breaks, short, irregular, and discrete strands can be added. To enhance the qualities of cement, half-and-half filaments are consolidated in addition to silica fume. In this study, different fiber-added materials can be combined with cement to improve synthetic and strength properties and plan for particular applications. By using different fiber extents of steel and polypropylene, the combination of strands—often referred to as "hybridization"—is presented. According to the IS code method of mix design, silica fumes ranging from 0 to 15 percent by volume of cement and poly-propylene fiber, steel (crimped) fibers, and hybrid fiber (poly-propylene and steel (crimped) fibers) were used as additives for each of the concrete mixes of M30 grade. All mixtures included a super plasticizer as well to enhance. Along with casting M30 grade concrete cubes and beams with 0 and 15% silica fumes, various amounts of steel fiber, polypropylene fiber, and hybrid fibers, by volume of cement, this study also identifies the fiber combinations that show the maximum compressive, flexural, and shear strength of concrete. Finally, we discovered that adding fiber and mineral admixtures to concrete causes it to have better properties than plain concrete.
