Cement is the most popular material used in construction the demand and cost of cement is increasing day to day, so experts are looking for supplementary materials with the main objective of reducing solid waste disposal problem. Fly ash which is a solid waste generated from thermal power station is used in partial replacement of cement in various proportions which is environmental friendly and also different fibers are also used to increase tensile strength and reduce cracks in the concrete. Concrete is the most vital material in the modern construction. Which has been in practice from olden days but concrete suffers from low tensile strength, limited ductility and little resistance to cracking. To overcome these weaknesses a new variety of concrete is desired. Therefore here is an experimental study proposing changes to the conventional concrete to increase fire resistance, increase crack resistance, increase ductility and flexural strength by partial replacement of fly ash to the cement and introducing fibers in the preparation of the concrete.
