Paper Title:
Polyester Fibers in the Concrete an Experimental Investigation
  Abstract

Construction field has experienced a growing interest in Fiber Reinforced Concrete (FRC) due to its various advantages. The disposal of industrial waste especially non biodegradable waste is creating a lot of problems in the environment. In the present investigation, an attempt has been made by using non biodegradable waste (polyester fibers) in the concrete to improve the crack resistance and strength. Concrete having compressive strength of 25MPa is used for this study. Samples were prepared by using various fiber contents starting from 0 to 6% of with an increment of 0.5% for finding Compressive strength, split tensile strength and flexural strengths. It is observed that, compressive strength, split tensile strength and flexural strengths of concretes is increasing as the fiber content is increased up to some extent.
