Concrete being brittle is weak in tension. The inclusion of fibres in concrete have significantly improves its compressive as well as tensile strength. The use of different types of fibres & their orientation in the matrix have shown positive responses among the researchers. In the present study alkali resistant glass fibres were used in the concrete mixes. A total of 8 mixes were prepared by varying the percentages of glass fibres and grade of concrete mixes. Based on the laboratory results the compressive and tensile strength was reported to increase up to 26.19% and 25.4%. However the workability of concrete mixes is not much affected by the addition of fibres. The tensile strength of concrete is improved which shows the use of glass fibres in concrete mixes may reduce its shortcoming of low tensile strength without affecting its workability and compressive strength.
