In this modern age, civil engineering constructions have their own structural and durability requirements, every structure has its own intended purpose and hence to meet this purpose, modification in traditional cement concrete has become mandatory. In today’s world, concrete is most well liked because of its good compressive strength and durability. Concrete could be a relatively brittle material, when subjected to normal stresses and impact loads, as result for their characteristics plain concrete members couldn’t support loads and tensile stresses that occurred, in concrete beams and slabs. Over the decades, there has been a big increase within the use of fibers in concrete for improving its properties like compressive strength and workability, durability. In this paper effect of steel and glass fibers on the compressive strength of concrete for M30 grade have been studied by varying percentage of steel and glass fibers in concrete. Steel and glass fiber varying by 1%, 1.5% and 2%. Concrete cubes of size 150mmX150mmX150mm were tested for compressive strength. It has been found that steel fibers added in specific percentage to concrete improves the mechanical properties, durability and serviceability of the structure. It is now established that one of the important properties of steel fiber reinforced concrete (SFRC) is its superior to cracking and crack propagation. Glass fiber has the advantages of having higher tensile strength and fire resistant properties, thus reducing the loss of injury during fire accident of concrete structures. The addition of steel reinforcement and glass reinforcement significantly increases the strength of concrete at all ages fresh and hardend, and results of steel fiber reinforced concrete the development of micro-cracks in concrete structure must be checked. The concrete having following ingredient such as cement, fine aggregate, coarse aggregate, water, steel fiber, glass fiber and superplasticizer. Hence compressive behavior of composite concrete with the varying percentage of such fibers have been studied.
