Abstract

The aim of this paper is to study the properties of basalt chopped strands fiber. To study the flexural behaviour of basalt chopped strands fiber reinforced concrete beam. To study its load-deformation characteristics and load carrying capacity, failure mode across cross section of the basalt strands chopped concrete beam. To study the parameters, which affect the behavior and increase in ultimate strength of the flexural strength of basalt fiber strands chopped fiber and effective technique in using the same. The various length of basalt chopped fiber in different volume of ratio to find. Major application of the basalt chopped fiber concrete for strengthening the beam. The beam is of 150mm x 175mm cross section through the longitudinal length of 1200mm long simply supported beam designed for flexure failure. To reduce the weight and cost of the reinforced concrete structures by adding the concrete.
