Concrete had a good future and is unlikely to get replaced by any other material on account of its ease to produce, infinite variability, uniformity, durability and economy with using of basalt fibre in high strength concrete.
The main aim of the investigation program is first to prepare the strength of concrete of grade M40 with locally available ingredient and then to study the effect of different proportion of basalt fibre in the mix and to find optimum range of basalt fibre content in the mix. The concrete specimens were tested at different age level for mechanical properties of concrete, namely, cube compressive strength, split tensile strength, flexural strength, durability of concrete and other test were conducted for cement, chemical admixture, coarse aggregate & fine aggregate.
