Study On the Compressive and Split Tensile Strength Properties of Basalt Fibre Concrete Members

At present Worldwide, a great research is being conducted concerning the use of fiber reinforced plastic wraps, laminates and sheets in the repair and strengthening of reinforced concrete members.

Experimental investigations the cube and cylinder of concrete beams with and without basalt fiber carried out. They made using each grade of concrete as normal concrete and basalt concrete(M20 & M30). From this study it is estimated that onset onwards basalt concrete specimens increasing strength when compared to control concrete. From the research it was proposed that, the usage of Basalt fibers in low cost composites for civil infrastructure applications gives good mechanical properties like strength and lower cost predicted for basalt fibers.
