Conventional concrete is almost unbendable and are highly brittle and rigid. There were number of experiments have been done to improve the bending properties of concrete. Bendable concrete is also called engineered cementitious composites abbreviated as ECC. This concrete does not contain any coarse aggregate which is replaced by fibers. This study is made on improving the properties of ECC by addition of polypropylene. The main objective of this project is to compare the durability properties of different proportioned ECC. ECC is a field-ready ductile concrete it has the potential to significantly contribute with enhancing infrastructure safety, durability. Polypropylene fibers and glass fibers are added to various proportions ( 0.5 %, 1%, 1.5% and 2% by weight of cement) and the durability properties are compared. Engineered cementitious composite to be improve the safety, durability, and sustainability of the structures and elements.
