Abstract
The present study aims at producing the concrete specimens by reinforcing optical fibers with varying percentage from 1% to 5% of diameter 1mm. and comparing it with conventional concrete. The concrete specimens subjected to different test such as Compressive strength, Split tensile strength, Flexural strength and Light transmission test. The strength obtained for the transparent concrete specimens is seen increase with increase in percentage of optical fibers content up to 4%. The results of transmission test were satisfactory as the optical fibers retain its efficiency. Thus it’s evident that the transparency of concrete structures can be introduced with the insertion of optical fibers without compromising the strength, which may be a breakthrough to the aspirations of achieving some new feet in modern architecture. This research experiment will be a series of initiatives to look closely at new and emerging advanced constructions in future.
