fiber reinforced concrete is the mixture of concrete with discontinuous discrete fibers. Fibers in concrete increase the tensile strength and also reduce the growth of micro cracks in the concrete. Fiber reinforced concrete is very effective and economical process to enhance the physical and mechanical properties of the concrete. Polyester fiber is a synthetic resin in which the polymer units are linked by ester groups. Use of polyester as fibers greatly effects the properties of concrete, In this paper an attempt is made to review the effects of acidic curing on treated and untreated polyester fiber reinforced concrete and its properties.
