ABSTRACT:
The plain concrete possesses a very low tensile strength, limited ductility and little resistance to cracking. The addition of small, closely spaced and uniformly dispersed fibres to concrete would act as crack arrester and would substantially improve its static and dynamic properties. This paper presents the variation in strength characteristics of fibre bricks by varying the percentage of fibres and class F flyash. the percentage of fibres is varied from 0.25% and 0.5% An effort for an alternate approach in the experimental manufacturing of brick was accomplished by using various supplementary cementing materials like class F Fly ash, Hydrated lime and fibres such as jute and banana are used as key ingredients in the present investigation. Recycling such wastes by utilizing them into building materials is a moderate solution for the environmental pollution issues. Much of an emphasis is laid on energy saving and economy. In this experimental work an attempt is made for such an alternate approach.
