The present day world is seeing the development of exceptionally difficult and challenging building structures. Glass fiber (likewise spelled glass fiber) and jute fiber is a material comprising of various greatly fine filaments of glass and jute. Frequently, concrete being the most essential and broadly utilized material is called upon to have high quality and adequate workability properties. Efforts are being made in the field of solid innovation to grow such concrete with exceptional qualities. Analysis everywhere throughout the world are endeavoring grow to elite concrete by utilizing filaments or fibers and different admixtures as a part of cement up to certain extents. fiber strengthened cement is a material made of a cementations matrix made out of concrete materials such as cement, sand, aggregate, water and admixtures, in which short length glass strands and jute strands are scattered. It has been generally utilized as a part of development business for non-auxiliary components, as facade boards, funneling and channels. The main aim of the study is effect of glass fiber and jute fiber in the concrete. Glass fiber has the high tensile strength and fire resistant properties thus reducing the loss of damage during fire accidents. Jute fiber has high tensile strength, good bond at fiber-matrix interface, adequate geometric stability, chemical resistance and durability. The addition of these fibers into concrete can dramatically increase the compressive strength, tensile strength and split tensile strength of the concrete. In this study, tests have done for the concrete with glass and jute fiber each of1%, 2% of cement by adding as an admixture.
