Abstract

In the present study an attempt has been made to understand the strength properties of no aggregate concrete (NAC) using steel fibers of different aspect ratio. No aggregate concrete (NAC) is a new type of concrete in which the use of coarse aggregates are totally avoided for preserving the natural stone, hillocks and hills. The use of sand is also avoided to preserve the river beds. This is a typical research work serving the agenda of sustainable development. As no aggregate concrete undergoes brittle failure and has low tensile strength, steel fibres of different aspect ratio are used in the present study. The strength properties such as compressive strength, flexural strength, and split tensile strength of no aggregate concrete with steel fibers are also studied.
