ABSTRACT The present trend in concrete technology is towards increasing the strength and durability of concrete to meet the demands of the modern construction. Concrete is the most popular artificial material on earth, which is the single most widely used material.In this paper the effect of polypropylene fiber was studied with different percentages by conducting compression and split tensile test. Test results after 7 days and 28 days curing were recorded for the analysis. The study is mainly focused on the experimental work and it is expected to answer the question whether addition of polypropylene fibers will increase the compression and tensile strength.Laboratory test results showed that optimum dosage of polypropylene fibers for better compression and tensile strength was found to be 1.5% hence these fibers can be effectively used.
