Abstract

The effect of glass fiber on flexural strength, split-tensile strength, and compressive strength was studied for different fiber content on M-20 grade concrete designed as per IS 10262. The maximum size of aggregates used was 20mm. To study the effect on compressive strength, flexural strength, split-tensile strength 6 cubes, 6 prisms and 6 cylinders were cast and tested. After that, a practical application of GFRC in the form of cement concrete tiles was taken into consideration and no special technique was used to produce these tiles. The thickness of the tiles was 20mm and maximum size of aggregates used was 8mm. The water-cement ratio was kept consistent and the admixture content was varied from 0.8 to 1.5 percent to maintain slump in between 50mm to 100mm. The size of short fibers Used was 30mm and the glass fibers were alkali resistant. The effect of these short fibers on wet Transverse strength, compressive strength, and water absorption was carried out. Six full-sized Tiles 400mm*400mm*20mm were tested and the results recorded. Pulse velocity tests were also conducted
