Abstract:

Concrete made with Portland cement has certain characteristics, it is relatively strong in compression but weak in tension and tends to be brittle. These two weaknesses have limited its use. Another fundamental weakness of concrete is that cracks start to form as soon as concrete is placed and before it has properly hardened. These cracks are major cause of weakness in concrete particularly in large onsite applications leading to subsequent fracture and failure and general lack of durability. The weakness in tension can be overcome by the use of conventional rod reinforcement and to some extent by the inclusion of a sufficient volume of certain fibers. This thesis represent the art of knowledge of basalt fiber, it is relatively new material. Basalt fiber is a high performance non-metallic fiber made from basalt rock melted at high temperature. In the last decade, basalt has emerged as a contender in the fiber reinforcement of composites. Basalt fiber reinforced concrete offers more characteristics such as light weight, good fire resistance and strength. In future it is very beneficial for construction industry. The study on basalt fiber reinforced concretes workability and strength properties of concrete with basalt fibers in proportions of 0, 1, 3 & 5 kg/m3 for M20 and M40 grades at 7,28, 56 and 91 days age of curing can be presented in this thesis.
