Abstract: This paper deals with the study the properties of fresh and hardened concrete. Due to the low tensile strength concrete may undergo brittle failure. These failure modes can be minimized by adding fiber in concrete and more recently synthetic macro fiber are used. This material can increased the strength, ductility and durability have led to interest in performance of fiber reinforced concrete .The fibers reduce the crack, contribute to tensile strength and improve the other mechanical properties. The natural coarse aggregate was replaced by recycled aggregate and it was treated with HCL acid and the fiber were used in the recycled aggregate concrete 0.5%,1%,1.5%,2% by volume fraction .The result shows that the fiber increase the strength with recycled coarse aggregate. 
Keyword: MHCL acid.
Scope of the Article: Properties and Mechanics of Concrete.
