Abstract: (Please read carefully abstract of the template). Jute fiber is a natural fiber that is an environmentally friendly material popularly known as golden fiber. Jute fiber is the most available fiber in India with fewer expenses. Polypropylene fiber is made by synthetic hydrocarbon polymer and has several advantages over other fibers: corrosion-resistant, durability, constructability with light-weight, abrasion resistant, chemical resistant. The aim of the study was to check the effect of using polypropylene and jute fiber in concrete as compared to conventional concrete M25 grade by testing in three different test methods like compressive strength test, split tensile strength test, and flexural strength test as per IS 10262:1082 code. The materials required for this experimental study are Portland Pozzolana Cement (PPC), coarse aggregate, fine aggregate, polypropylene fiber and jute fiber, water. And to determinate compressive strength test 36 cube specimens of size (150*150*150) mm, spilt tensile strength test 36-cylinder specimens’ size of (150*300) mm, and flexural strength test 36 beam specimens’ size of (100*100*500) and all mixes at 7 days, 14 days, and 28 days after casting and curing were tested.
