This paper represents the research initialization towards the fresh and hardened properties of macro polypropylene blended fiber reinforced concrete using Silica Fume. In this study polypropylene fiber are used with 0%, 0.15%, 0.30%, 0.60% and 1.0% by weight of cement and Silica Fume with percentage of 0%, 5%, 7.5% and 10% which are replaced with cement for M30 grade concrete. All of the mixes are tasted with the compressive strength test and flexural strength test for 7 days 28 days. Durability test is also carried out for 56 days. The results from all of the tests are to be compared with control concrete mix.
