Abstract

Conventional concrete has two major drawbacks : low tensile strength and a destructive and brittle failure. concrete(PFRC) has been introduced. In a attempt to increase concrete ductility and energy absorption , polypropylene fiber reinforced this study is part of research program on evaluating the performance of polypropylene fiber reinforced concrete. An experimental investigation explored properties such as compressive strength, flexural strength, split tensile strength and shear strength and shear strength of polypropylene fiber reinforced concrete. The fiber volume fraction v ranges from 0%,0.2%,0.4%,0.6%,0.8%,1%, to 2%. Significant change is found for compressive strength, flexural, split tensile and shear improves greatly, when compare to the plain concrete.
