Abstract: Development of Bendable Concrete using Polyvinyl Alcohol (PVA) fibers is undergoing a number of phases since Last Decade. The Advancement in Concrete Technology has an ample scope in using these fibers for the purpose of increasing the Potency, Fulfillment and Resilience of Concrete which are the three foremost requirements of any High-Strength, High-Performance and High-Durable Concrete. This Paper focuses on Development and Analysis of PVA Fiber Reinforced Concrete or ECC (Engineered Cementitious Composites or Bendable Concrete) in its Fresh and Hardened state with PVA fiber content of Zero Percent to Two Percent by Volume of Concrete with an increment of 0.25 Percent fiber. The significance of micromechanics in the material design is emphasized. The tensile strain-hardening behaviour of ECC is also recognized in this paper. Linear Regression is acclimated to Foretell strength of ECC at the age of 28 days for different percentages of fiber by volume using Microsoft Excel and MAT Lab.
