Glass Fibre Reinforcements in Concrete

2016 International Journal of Science and Research (IJSR)  
Du ring the past decades the construction field has experienced a growing interest in the advantages of fibre reinforcement in concrete. Between the different fibres available, e.g. steel, synthetic, glass, and natural fibres, steel fibre is probably the most investigated and most common ly used. Worldwide, a great deal of research is currently being conducted concerning the use of glass fibre as reinforcement in concrete. Less weight facilitates easy and rapid installation and also decreases

Superior strength enhances the ability to endure seismic loads. In the p resent experimental investigation, glass fibres has been used to study the effect on co mpressive, split tensile and fle xu ral strength on M20 & M25 grades of concrete with varying percentage of glass fibre.
