This study examines compressive strength of this functionally graded steel fibre reinforced concrete (FGFRPAC). A five mixes were prepared and tested in the present study. The first series of FGFRPAC were prepared and reinforced in three layers of 3%, 1.5% and 3% with crimped, hooked end. The second series were reinforced with 2.5% steel fibre equally in all the three layers. The average amount of fibre used in FGFRPAC specimen was 2.5% which is similar to the fibre dosage used in the second
