Abstract
During the past 5 decades, the concrete construction field has seen a growing interest in the advantages that fiber reinforcement has to offer. Between the different types of fibers available basalt fiber is considered promising new material to use. It has extremely good strength characteristics and thermal resistances, high resistances to an alkaline environment, and is cheap product, making it an excellent material to reinforced concrete in view of the significant of basalt fiber for concrete and because different lengths and proportion of basalt fibers have an effect on the mechanical properties of concrete, it is proposed to review the effect of using different basalt fiber lengths and content on the mechanical properties of concrete. The mechanical properties of concrete reviewed are compressive strength, tensile strength, shear strength, workability and unit weight. The research work will be carried out on experimental investigation of basalt fiber reinforced concrete. Properties of concrete checked by testing cubes, cylinder and beams the specimens are casted using M30 grade concrete with locally available material. The object of present work is to study effect of different proportion of fibers in the mix design and find out optimum percentage of fibers with maximum strength criteria. The specimens like cubes, cylinder and beams tested for compressive strength, split tensile strength and shear strength
