Abstract: For investigating the effect of addition of hybrid fibers in different proportions in concrete 6 different mix proportions with fibers of different volume fractions are added to concrete.Hybridfiber reinforced concrete with composition of steel, synthetic and natural fiber. Here three different type fibers are added to achieve better concrete strength compare to conventional concrete. The cubes of 100 x 100 x 100 mm size and cylinders of 100mm diameter and 200mm length were cast for compressive and split tensile test respectively. Disc of size 200mm diameter and 100mm height was cast for impact test. After confirming the characteristic compressive strength from optimum values were selected and tested for flexure on beam specimens of size 100 x 150 x 1200mm. Test results shows that the addition of thesefibers increases_the_compressive_strength,_split_tensile_strength,,imp act resistance and flexural properties of structure.
