Abstract: Concrete is a common construction material used in world because it can take our desired shape with minimum efforts. We know concrete is strong in compression and weak in tension and concept of adding fibers to improve strength of concrete is common in world. So for improving concrete property we add spring(helical) shaped fibers of spring length 25mm and diameter 8mm and aspect ratio 3.125 and length of plane(linear) wire 100mm and diameter 1mm so aspect ratio of plane(linear) wire is 100. Now concrete was reinforced by above mentioned spring fibers in following percentage 0%, 0.5%, 1% and 1.5% by weight of cement. A total 15 cubes of standard size 150mm×150mm×150mm and 15 cylinders of 150mm diameter, 300mm height and 15 beams of 100mm×10mm×500mm were casted and tested after 28 days by compression and split tensile and two point load method respectively for checking strength of concrete in compression, tension and flexure.
