This paper presents a series of tests for characterizing the structural behavior of fibre reinforced concrete subjected to different loading. The experimental program involves investigation of fly ash replaced concrete with two types of fibres i.e. Steel fibre and polypropylene fibre. Plain concrete and conventionally fly ash replaced reinforced concrete specimens have also been casted and tested in the laboratory. The mechanical properties of Conventional M30 grade of concrete and concrete with cement replaced by fly ash and reinforced with steel and polypropylene fibres of three volume fractions of 0.2% to 1.4% are studied. This research is to study about the mechanical properties of fly ash with steel and polypropylene as a strengthening material.
