Concrete is most widely used construction material in the world. Fiber reinforced concrete (FRC) is a concrete in which small and discontinuous fibers are dispersed uniformly. The fibers used in FRC may be of different materials like steel, G.I., carbon, glass, aramid, asbestos, polypropylene, jute etc. Hybrid fibre can provide reinforcement at all the range of strains. Combination of low and high modulus fibres can arrest cracks at micro level as well as macro level. Overcome disadvantage of lower workability caused due to use of only higher percentage of steel fibres. Potential advantage in improving concrete properties as well as reducing the overall cost of concrete production. FRC has found many applications in civil engineering field. Based on the laboratory experiment on fiber reinforced concrete (FRC), cube and cylinders specimens have been designed with steel fiber reinforced concrete (SFRC) containing fibers of 0% and 0.5% volume fraction of hook end Steel fibers of 53.85, 50 aspect ratio and alkali resistant glass fibers containing 0% and 0.25% by weight of cement of 12mm cut length were used without admixture. The results obtained show that the addition of steel fiber improves the modulus of elasticity of concrete. It was also analyzed that by increasing the fiber volume fraction from 0.5% to 1.5% and aspect ratio of fibers from 50 to 71 there was a healthy effect on modulus of elasticity of Steel Fiber Reinforced Concrete.
