AbstractThe structural behaviour of steel fiber reinforced fly ash concrete under compression and flexure was studied by conducting tests on standard control specimens. The use of steel fibers in fly ash concrete improves its structural properties, especially the flexural tensile strength. Increasing the percentages of fly ash upto 30% and steel fibers upto 1.5% in concrete enhances the flexural tensile strength as well as the compressive strength. Finally, the use of fiber reinforced fly ash concrete is recommended as an alternative to fiber reinforced plain concrete.
