Experimental Investigation on Steel Fibre Reinforced Concrete
Akhilesh Chaudhary | Shiv Kumar Yadav 
Abstract: The present aspect of this research is that how we utilize fibres of steel in structural concrete elements for enhancing the concrete’s mechanical property. Also the purpose of this research is to determine mechanical properties of concrete and the comparison of these properties with containing and without containing fibres. The experiment is done by using few tests like compressive strength test and flexural strength test. For determine strength in compression and strength in flexure, several test are carried out according to exploration of required investigation. The experimental program included, a total eleven mix batch of concrete which contain steel fibres vary from 0 % to 5 % by weight of cement with an regular interval of 0.5 % by weight of cement. For improvement in mechanical properties of concrete we use hooked type fibre of steel. As we increase the fibre amount, as well as significantly there will occurring a decrement in workability of concrete. i. e. a inverse relation between them.
