Concrete is the most frequently utilized construction material, and research shows that it will remain so in the long - term ahead. Concrete mix is further differentiated as it mostly produced on-site; as a result, their inherent variability and the necessity for effective quality control become essential factors. It possesses a wide range of engineering qualities, can mould in any shape and is made from low-priced components. Excipients which are trash products from industries are used to make rich-quality concrete in large quantities. In this paper, we planned to examine the impact of fibres on concrete properties. The type of fiber used in concrete is steel fibre, carbon fibre, glass fibre etc. Fibres are discontinuous and are generally distributed randomly throughout the concrete matrix in mat form. Fibres serve as crack arresters, preventing cracks from developing and changing an intrinsically brittle matrix, such as cement concrete, into a strong composite with enhanced crack resistance, improved ductility, and different post-cracking behavior before failure. Fibre Reinforced Concrete (FRC) is a composite material made up of cement, mortar, or concrete and appropriate fibres that are discontinuous, discrete, and uniformly disseminated. Discrete fibres do not include, woven textiles, continuous meshes, rods, or lengthy wires. As a conclusion, the practicality of fibers is investigated in this work.
