Abstract

The aim of this study is to evaluate the mechanical properties of PET fiber reinforced concrete using alccofine. In this study PET fiber are used with 0%, 0.5%, 1.5% and 3% by weight of cement with Alccofine (GGBS) percentage of 0%, 3%, 6% and 9% which replacing cement for M30 grade concrete. All of the mixes are tasted to find the compressive strength test and flexural strength test for 7 days 28 days. The results from all of the tests are to be compared with control concrete mix.
