Abstract: Among the various types of fibers used in the preparation of Fiber Reinforced Concrete (FRC), glass fibers come under the category of non metallic and inorganic type. By making use of Alkali Resistant glass fibers, a very useful FRC composite can be made. This possesses enhanced properties like more tensile strength, energy absorption and newlinecorrosion resistance. Researchers all over the world are working on GFRC composites and glass fiber reinforced mortars. Limited amount of work has been done on structural applications of GFRC. In the first stage of work, Glass fibers at lower volume percentages were randomly mixed with concrete. Specimens were cast, cured and newlinetested for Compressive strength, Tensile strength and Flexural strength. The investigation showed enhanced strength and superior concrete composite is evolved. In continuation, experimental investigation was carried out to study the strength properties of GFRC, with higher volume newlinepercentages of glass fibers (ranging from 0.5 to 1.5%) randomly mixed with concrete. Higher values of Compressive, Tensile and Flexural newlinestrength were achieved and superior concrete composite evolved. Hence it was concluded that structural applications can be tried with Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete.
