Abstract

The objective of this research is to produce polypropylene fibers with improved interface bonding with a concrete matrix. In the present experimental investigation, attempts are made to study on the various strength properties like compressive strength, split tensile strength, an also durability properties like CSAT test were held on long-term durability properties of PPFRC. Experiments were conducted for both Ordinary Concrete and polypropylene fiber Concrete with different percentages of polypropylene fiber. It was observed capillary section absorption conducted for determining the surface absorption test for polypropylene fiber concrete results shows increasing % of fiber than increasing surface absorption and minimum surface absorption value obtained a minimum of certain limit containing PPF in concrete. The 0.0% 0.2%, 0.4%, 0.6%, 0.8% and 1% addition of polypropylene fiber into the concrete shows better result in mechanical properties and durability.
