Abstract: Basalt fibers are extensively used construction materials due to its advantages. This paper emphasizes the behavior of basalt fiber reinforced concrete (BFRC) subjected to chloride attack. Basalt fibers are added in proportions of 0.5%, 1.0%, 1.5%, 2%, and 2.5%. Grade of concrete is M40. Cubes were casted for a standard size of 150*150*150mm and cured for a period of 28 days. Chloride attack is calculated by dipping the cubes in 5% of sodium chloride solution for a span of 28, 60 and 90 days. To estimate the chloride attack impact on BFRC, BFRC is tested for compressive strength, Acid attack and Rapid chloride penetration test.
