More recently fibers such as those used in traditional composite materials have been introduce to
increase it’s toughness or ability to resist crack growth. Compared with full-dispersed polypropylene fiber has
advantages in its thinness, large amount, non-water absorbency, strong acid & alkali resistance and similar
elastic modulus with that of concrete. Mainly application is Increase seepage resistance, Improve steel
protection, Increase cracking resistance, Increase fire resistance, Strengthen spurt & fatigue, Improve plastic
deformity. And It’s uses are Projects like concrete road, bridge, airport road and factory floor which strictly
require cracking resistance. In this research study aim is comparison of compressive strength between normal
mix concrete & green concrete blocks composed by locally available waste materials with Polypropylene fiber
and reduce the cost of concrete. In this research study the (OPC) cement has been replaced by waste wooden
chips & fine aggregate (sand) has been replaced by waste tyre rubber accordingly in the 15% by weight of M30 grade concrete and also used polypropylene fiber as a additional material. Concrete mixtures were
produced, tested and compared in terms of compressive strength to the conventional concrete. These tests
were carried out to evaluate the mechanical properties for 3, 14 and 28 days. Then after 3, 14, & 28 days of
curing work, we will perform analysis and measure compressive strength in normal mix concrete and green
blocks with polypropylene fiber concrete
