Paper Title
Increasing Mechanical Properties of Concrete by Using Steel Fibers
  Mahanthi Satyavathi,  Dr. N. Victor Babu

Concrete is the one of the world’s most widely used construction material. When the concrete is weak in tension and brittle in nature which results in sudden tensile failure without warning .These failures can be reduced by using the steel fibers in concrete. These fibers are thin, short and distributed randomly throughout the concrete member of different aspect ratios (L/d ratio).In this experiment an attempt is made in order to increase the strength and properties by adding steel fibers of different proportions 0%, 0.5%, 1.5%, 2.5% and 3.5%.In order to identify the mechanical properties of concrete various tests have been conducted like compressive strength, split tensile strength & flexural strength for M30 grade of concrete.

Keywords- brittle, steel fibers, split tensile strength & flexural strength.
