Paper Title
Mechanical Properties of Human Hair Concrete
Fiber rein forced polymer compounds is the majorcategory of structural matter because of its many merits. Reinforcing the polymer should be either typical or engineered. Engineered fiber, for instance, polypropylene, glass etc. has superior specific features however their areas of application are limited because of its economic problems. Recently there is an increase in interest to ward ordinary compounds which are made by reinforcing the typicall fIber Human hair has hard ductile character rustics; therefore, it can beutIlize das a fiber reinforcing substance. It provides better feature sat easier cost of production. It also creates environmental problems because of its deterioration property (Non-degradable characteristic).To achieve this aim, we have triedtoinvestigatethepossibleusageofhuman hairwhichis not only cost effective but effortlessly availableinall over the country for manufacturing value added outcome. The aim of this research work is to find out the properties (mechanical) of hair fiber reinforced concrete. The effect of loading on fiber and the length of fiber on mechanical behavior like compression strength, tensile strength, flexural strength and toughness of resulting compounds is investigated. Testing was carried out on polymer compounds with distinct percentages of hair fiber added by weight of cementi.e.0%,2%,4%,6%, 8%, 10%andwithvaryinglengthofhair fiber i.e.0.5-2cm.Bytestingof resulting specimens, it has been noticed that there is remarkable effect of human hair fiber on the mechanical properties of resulting compounds.
