Mechanical Properties of Concrete by using M- Sand and Basalt Fibre in Concrete

2020 International journal of recent technology and engineering  
This paper presents the impact of the basalt fibre in concrete.Basalt fibre is a relatively new material and it is a high performance non-metallic fibre made from basalt rock melted at a high temperature. It is economical and having good strength characteristics, and also resists against temperature and alkaline environment. The Main aim of this paper is to find the compressive, flexural and split tensile strength of Concrete with M-sand and Basalt Fibre. The length of basalt fibre 12mm was

This paper shows the enhancement of mechanical properties of concrete by adding Basalt fibre and partial replacement of river sand with M-sand.
