For more than three decades, a number of researchers have tried to use fibers to improve the performance of reinforced cement concrete (RCC) beams. The application of fiber-reinforced concrete can overcome the congestion-related problems of steel reinforcement by reducing the amount of stirrups or eliminating the stirrups. Due to the inhibition of crack propagation and widening through fiber-bridging mechanisms, it is well-known that the shear strength of RC beams can be improved by including fibers. This study aims to investigate the feasibility of eliminating the minimum shear reinforcement in reinforced sustainable high-strength concrete (HSC) beams by incorporating fibers. To do this, four large reinforced HSC beams, with and without stirrups and fibers, were fabricated and tested. The suitability of electronic waste fibre, glass fibre and hooked steel fibres as fiber reinforcement in concrete will be studied. From studies it is observed that steel fiber reinforced concrete exhibits more strength compared to other 3 beams.
