Mechanical Performance of Reinforced Concrete with Different Proportions and lengths of Basalt Fibres

This paper discusses the effect of the fraction (0.2-0.3% by volume) and length (22 mm and 24 mm) of basalt fibre on the mechanical properties of concrete.

The paper aims to evaluate the effect of different combinations of basalt fibres on the mechanical properties of concrete, as well as identify the best basalt fibre length and content that have the optimum influence on concrete.

This paper is considered to be distinct from other research work as it fills the literature gap by presenting new unknown facts and also adds new knowledge. For example, it identifies the best basalt fibre length and content combination that demonstrates an improvement in the mechanical properties of concrete.
