Abstract
Basalt Fiber Reinforced Polymer (BFRP) materials have been as of late presented as inside support for concrete individuals and in addition outside fortification for retrofitting structures. Not at all like Carbon FRP (CFRP) and Glass FRP (GFRP) materials, BFRP materials have not been broadly utilized. The restricted utilization of BFRP materials can be ascribed to the absence of principal investigates required to set up the proper plan proposals and rules. Basalt fiber is a high performance non-metallic fiber made from basalt rock melted at high temperature. Basalt fiber strengthened solid concrete offers more Characteristics, for example, light weight, great imperviousness to fire and quality. This thesis presents an experimental program investigated the effect of using chopped basalt fibers with an aspect ratio of 600 to 700. The study included testing concrete cylinders and prisms, cubes with basalt fiber as an additive. The main objective of this research was to determine the fundamental characteristics of basalt fiber -reinforced concrete (BFRC). The fundamental characteristics include compressive strength, flexural strength, split tensile strength as well as durability tests such as sorptivity and water absorption test etc. The experimental program included with different basalt fiber percentages were used in concrete as 0.1%, 0.2%, 0.4%, 0.8% as total weight of ingredients. The testing was done on 24 no of cubes (150mmX150mmX150mm) for compressive strength, 12 no of Quantities of cylinders (150mmX300mm) was tried for part split tensile test and 4 quantities of beams (100mmX100mmX500mm) were tried for bending strength. The effect of the basalt fiber was determined by comparing test results to control specimens without fiber.
