Abstract: Aim of this investigation was to study the effect of lathe scrap fibre and steel fibre replacement in concrete at different percentage so that we can achieve an improved and more durable concrete comparative to conventional concrete. Concrete is weak in tension and good in compression and also it is less ductile therefore, to terminate those weaknesses of concrete reinforcement bar is combine with it, but the reinforcement bar can’t fulfil the requirement of mechanical strength of concrete so to fulfil the requirements lathe scrap fibre and steel fibre is added so that the better composite material is achievable. After the investigation on several researcher work, we find 1.2% to 1.5% of lathe scrap fibre or steel fibre replacement according to weight of concrete, this is the optimum replacement in concrete to improve mechanical strength. But according to another research paper in which fine aggregate is partially replaced by lathe scrap fibre at percentage of 15%, 30% and 60% by its weight and it also improves the mechanical strength in compare to conventional concrete. Therefore, the review study characterize the utilisation of lathe scrap fibre and steel fibre in FRC improves the tensile strength and provides better resistance for early crack development in concrete. And also inexpensive, easily available and furthermore best for retrofitting and shotcrete techniques.
