In this research concrete mixes were tested to investigate the effect of fiber waste and fiber glass and evaluate the efficiency on fresh and hardened concrete for trying to produce a concrete with high strength. an experimental study was carried out to test for c ompressive strength of concrete for six types of concrete mixes each mixture were casted in the form of cubes were studied for 7 and 28 days, one of those mentioned mixes is a (control mix). Finally the results are compared with the normal conventional co ncrete (control mix). The main aim of this investigation is first to prepare the strength of concrete of compressive strength 25N/mm 2 with locally available ingredient and then to study the effect of different proportion of fiber waste and fiber glass in t he mix and to find the optimum range of the effective proportion. The various proportions considered are 0.1%, 0.2%, 0.3%, o.4%, o.5% of fiber glass and fiber waste from mixture weight respectively. the research was shown that the effect of fiber and fiber waste on the fresh concrete that the workability decreases as the proportion of the fiber waste and fiber glass additives increases, and for the hardened concrete the specific compressive strength increases up to 0.3% of the fiber waste and fiber glass co ntent of mixture weight, and also show’s beyond these mention proportioned that the compressive strength decreases.
