This paper reports on a comprehensive study on the properties of concrete contain bagasse ash and steel fibers. Properties studied include unit weight and workability of fresh concrete, and compressive strength, flexural tensile strength, splitting tensile strength. Bagasse ash is lateral product of sugarcane that is obtained after heat treatment of sugarcane. Steel fibers are concrete reinforcing material which in combination with concrete provides certain advantages in comparison with

Steel fibers are made from different wire materials, designed to provide concrete with temperature and shrinkage crack controls, enhanced flexural reinforcement, improved shear strength and increase the crack resistance of concrete. In this investigation we are using the fineness ratio's percentages as 15% of bagasse ash as replacement of cement and fiber volume fraction was 0%, 1.0%, 2% and 3% in volume proportion. The laboratory results showed that steel fiber addition, either into Portland cement concrete or bagasse ash concrete, improve the tensile strength properties and reduce workability.
