Several attempts have been made in the recent years on studies on the behavior of
plain SCC. However, only a few attempts have been made on the behaviour of
structural elements made of SCC. Also, several studies in the past have revealed the
usefulness of the steel fibres to improve the structural properties of concrete like
ductility, post crack resistance, energy absorption capacity etc.
An attempt has been made in the investigation reported in this paper to study the
effect of glass fibres on glass fibre reinforced self compacting concrete using Alkali-
Resistant glass fibres on the strength and behaviour of fibre reinforced SCC structural
elements subjected to flexure for various grades of concrete mixes of M 30, M 40.
