Abstract
This project was deals with the mechanical strength properties of sisal fiber reinforced concrete with natural resin for a mix proportions of M25. These materials were chosen to improve the strength of the concrete to obtain sustainability and better quality structure. Concrete made with ordinary Portland cement has some characteristics, it is relatively weak in tension but strong in compression. Hence the tension is taken by reinforcement in conventional concrete. This concrete has some changes in the strength and toughness of concrete due to the addition of natural resin and sisal fibers. Fiber has low density, no health risk, increased specific strength and modulus, less cost, sisal fiber can be used in composites making ropes, mats and carpets, which is easily procured in some countries. The purpose of this project is based on the investigation of the use of sisal fibers in structural concrete to enhance the mechanical characteristics of concrete. To determine and compare the results of concrete containing no fibers and with natural resin and sisal fibers by using several tests workability test, compressive strength test, split tensile strength test, flexural behaviour strength test. A total of five mix batches of concrete containing 1%, 2% . 3%, 4% and 5% of fiber with combination of natural resin were cast and this type of concrete relatively attains more compressive strength.
