Abstract:

Concrete is a brittle material with high strength in compression but weak in tension for which reinforcement is provided. Fibers have been used in concrete as reinforcement and strengthening component as they are effective in strengthening the concrete under tension as well as withstanding the propagation of cracks. The influence of sisal fibers on the strength of concrete is taken as the main objective of this experimental study. The sisal fibers were added in varying percentages of 0%, 0.5%, 1%, 1.5% and 2% in three grades of concrete namely M20, M30 and M40 and the mechanical properties such as compression, split tensile and flexure were tested. The optimum fibre volume fraction for compressive strength was found to be at 1%, while the split tensile and flexure strength improved with the increase in volume fraction of fibres. The test results indicated that the sisal fibers were effective in improving the strength of concrete.
