AbstractThe current manuscript deals with subject of addition of natural fibers to concrete in order to study the strength properties and also to observe if there is reduction in propagation of shrinkage crack problems. Basically natural fibers are of two types. Natural inorganic fibers such as Basalt Asbestos etc and the other are the natural organic fibers such as coconut palm kenaf jute sisal banana pine sugarcane bamboo etc. The natural fibers are investigated by different researchers as construction materials that can be used in cement pastemortarconcrete. This study may include the fiber properties characteristics and compatibility between themselves. Also the comparisons and conclusion to be studied for different fiber-cement proportions. However all properties of concrete may not improve for the same proportions of different fibers. Some properties may be improved and same may be reduced since each fiber has its own different properties. Totally the study deals with comparisons and differences between the different natural fibers
