Abstract: Thedifference between conventional concrete and high strength concrete disclose to the compressive strength that is the maximum resistance of a concrete sample to applied load. Even of there is no decisive point of partition between conventional concrete and high strength concrete. According to Indian standards compressive strength of high strength concrete is more than 65N/mm2 .This paper clears the effects of addition of varying proportions of glass fibers and polypropylene fibers on the High strength concrete properties (M60 mix). To find the fibers effects on compressive strength, tensile strength by a preliminary test. The fundamental aim of the analysis is to study the effect of Polypropylene fiber(0% , 1%,1.5%, 2%) and glass fiber (0% , 1%,1.5%, 2%) and glass and polypropylene combined(0.5%+1.5%)(1.5%+0.5%)(1%+1%) mix by varying content and discovering the optimum fiber content. The specimens are investigated at varying level of cube compressive strength, split tensile strength.The compressive, tensile and flexural strength was increased. However, highly suggested and to execute more properties of fiber reinforced concrete were investigated.
