Abstract: “Fiber Reinforced Self Compacting Concrete” (FRSCC) is composed of cement, different sizes of coarse and fine aggregates, which integrate with fiber. In this current investigation, M40 grade Self Compacting Concrete reinforced with glass fibers has been developed using the Nan Su method. Fresh state and hardened state properties of Glass Fiber Reinforced Self Compaction Concrete are studied for glass fibers of different aspect ratio (875, 1285 & 1714) and percentage of volume fraction (0, 0.25, 0.5, 0.75 & 1). From the investigation carried out it is found that incorporation of glass fibers of aspect ratio 1285 and percentage of volume fraction 0.5 to SCC attains better compressive and flexural strength compared to other mixtures and also incorporation of glass fibers of aspect ratio 1285 and percentage of volume fraction 0.75 to SCC attains better split tensile strength compared to other mixtures.
