ABSTRACT: The main objective of the Project is to determine the Compressive Strength, Split Tensile Strength and Flexural Strength by adding the fibers to the concrete. Fiber Reinforced concrete is a concrete containing fibrous material which increases the structural integrity. It contains short discrete fibers that are uniformly distributed and randomly oriented. Fibers include coir fibers & jute fibers. The main purpose of adding fibers in concrete is to resist from cracking. Due to the adding of fibers in concrete the freezing and thawing resistance is improved. In this project coir fibers and jute fibers are mixed in various proportions of concrete. coir fibers percentage is 0.1, 0.2% &0.3% and jute fiber percentage is 0.1%, 0.2% & 0.3% using M20 Grade of concrete. The test reveals that the workability and strength of the concrete are slightly better than the Conventional Concrete.
