Conventional concrete i.e. the concrete generally has low tensile strength with limited ductility and low resistance towards cracking. The micro cracks that are developed internally are inherent among concrete and can be explained with the help of propagation of that micro cracks due to its inferior tensile strength. Different fibers, added at a certain percentage of concrete known to improve the deformation properties of concrete along with the plasticity against crack resistance, such as flexural strength. Mainly concrete & ferroconcrete research has been moved to steel fibers, and glass fibers have recently become more available, with no corrosion problems associated with glass fibers. This article describes an experimental study of the usage of glass fibers in the structural concrete. High-dispersion CEM-FILL fiberglass of 14 μm diameter with an aspect ratio of 857 was used at a dosage of 0.33% to 1% by weight in concrete and its mechanical properties such as compressive strength, flexural strength and modulus of elasticity.
