Hybrid Fiber Reinforced Concrete, GFRC, Glass Fiber


Fiber reinforced concrete (FRC) became in the recent decades a very popular and attractive material in structural engineering because of its good mechanical performance. In this project the mechanical properties, namely compressive strength, flexural strength were studied for concrete prepared using different hybrid fiber combinations of glass fibers and polypropylene fibers. The objective of this study is to evaluate compressive strength and flexural strength of fiber reinforced concrete with respect to different combination of glass fibers and polypropylene fibers. It is observed that quantity of fibers both glass fibers and polypropylene fibers play significant role in increment flexural properties of concrete.
