An experimental program was carried out to evaluate the mechanical properties of cement- based composites. Compressive strength test and splitting tensile strength test were performed and the results were analyzed statistically. According to the results of this study, the designed direct tensile testing method was a suitable method to estimate the tensile strength of fibre cement- based composites. Steel fibres can greatly increase the mechanical properties of cement-based composites. Specimens containing fibre of 0.0, 0.3, 0.4, 0.5, 0.6, 0.8 and 1.0 % are prepared and tested in this work. It is demonstrated that certain amount of fibres enhances the compressive and split tensile capacity of the fibre reinforced cement mortar. The Compressive strength of mortar was increased to 43.62 % at 3 days, 62.29 % at 7 days & 22.62 % at 28days and Split tensile strength was increased by 105.26 % at 7 days & 29.17 % at 28 days.
