Abstract

This paper focuses on the effect of nylon and basalt fibres on the strength parameters of Self Compacting Concrete. The fibres were used separately, varied as 0.3%, 0.4% and 0.5% by weight of cementitious materials. The parameters tested were compressive strength, splitting tensile strength and flexural strength. It was observed that there was an increase in the compression, split tensile and flexural strength due to the addition of nylon and basalt fibres. An optimum dosage of 0.4% was found for nylon and basalt fibres in both compression and split tensile strength. Flexural strength peaked at an optimum dosage of 0.5%.
