Abstract: This article presents the effect of fibers in the polymer concrete. The concrete was designed with M25 grade concrete and 10% of Bisfenol –A was added to produce polymer concrete. Few mixes are planned with incorporation of steel fibers in the proportion of 1 and 2% by volume. In all the mixes manufacture sand was used instead of river sand. The tests are conducted to estimate compressive, split and flexural strengths. From the results it is noticed that, the strengths are increasing with incorporation of polymer and steel fibers.
