Abstract: This experimental work deals with the effects of alccofine in concrete by optimum replacement of cement and variation of steel fibers to determine the workability and compressive strength. In this work 42 cube samples of size 150*150*150mm were cast by 10% of alccofine as constant with different percentages of steel fibers 1,2,3,4 and 5 respectively. From the results, it was found that strength was increased with optimum replacement of alccofine with increasing the % of steel fibers after 7&28 days curing. For the experimental values best fit model was developed. Using ANSYS, all the concrete cubes were studied and determined the values of deformation, principle stresses and shear stresses.
Keywords: Alccofine, ANSYS, Compressive Strength, Steel Fiber.
