Experimental Investigation on Polypropylene Fiber Reinforced Concrete With Artificial

A. P. Sathe | A. V. Patil


Abstract: The paper presents research work of experimental investigation on polypropylene fiber reinforced concrete by replacing river sand to artificial sand with and without admixture. Use of fiber reinforce polymer in civil engineering increase rapidly. Various type of fiber is used such as glass, carbon, steel, asbestos, polyester and polypropylene. The various experimental investigations for determination of properties of polypropylene fiber are discussed in paper work. This paper presents the effect of polypropylene (PP) fibers on various properties of concrete such as compressive strength, tensile strength, workability, and fracture properties with various content of fiber (0 %, 0.5 %, 1.0 %, 1.5 %). The result of this present investigation indicates that by adding of 0.5 % of polypropylene fiber shows maximum compressive and tensile strength.
