Concrete is a fundamental unit for the infrastructural development of an entire world and is a most commonly used building material for its sustainability, versatility, durability and economy. Concrete is a mixture of cement, sand and aggregate with water. To meet the requirements for new construction, the current trend in concrete technology is to increase the strength and durability of concrete. Research is very concerned with laboratory work to see how including polypropylene fibers improves material durability. Polypropylene fibres will be adding in various proportions (0.75% and 1.5% by weight of cement) the increase compressive strength, Tensile strength for M30 grade of concrete. With the inclusion of a limited number of polypropylene threads aged 7, 14, and 28 days, our project demonstrates the proven strength results of the FRC.
