Abstract

This paper inspect on exploring the effects of using fiber and admixture in the mechanical properties of the strength of concrete of different grades. The primary concern of this study is to establish the divergence in the strength properties of M20, M25 and M30 concrete with addition of admixture and polymer fiber. Based on the compressive strength of fifty four tested cylinders, the results show that the addition of admixture and polymer fiber both give higher strengths more than that of the reference concrete which largely can be used to reduce the percentage of cement.
