Extensively used material in construction industry is concrete this is because of good workability and ability to be moulded to any shape. Ordinary cement concrete possesses very low tensile strength, limited ductility and less resistance to cracking. The concrete shows the brittle behaviour and fails to handle tensile loading hence leads to internal micro cracks which are mainly responsible for brittle failure of concrete. In this era, RCC constructions have their own structural and durability requirements, every structure has its own intended purpose and hence to meet this purpose, modification in traditional cement concrete has become mandatory. It has been proved that different type of fibers added in specific percentage to concrete improves the mechanical properties, durability and serviceability of the structure. As compared to other fibers it is now established that one of the important properties of Steel Fiber Reinforced Concrete (SFRC) is its superior resistance to cracking and crack propagation. In this paper Past studies based on the Steel fiber concrete is studied in detail.
