Abstract: This paper presents that the experimental investigation on High Performance Concrete (HPC) using GGBS as partial replacement of cement in various percentages (0% 10%, 20%, 30%, 40% & 50%) of concrete. The past research works were bring to promote an ordinary concrete into special concrete (HPC). Material properties are evaluated by conducting a laboratory tests (physical properties and mechanical properties). The addition of glass fibre in different percentages (0%, 1%, 2%, 3% & 4%) and polypropylene fibre in different percentages (0%, 0.1%, 0.2%, 0.3% & 0.4%) by volume of cement content. To achieve higher workability CONPLAST SP 430 is added in concrete mix. The grade of concrete M35 is used. The two different fibres of concrete mixes were casted by in the form of cubes, cylinders and prisms. Thus the experimental results shows that polypropylene fibre in HPC concrete mix is more effective than glass fibre in HPC concrete mix.
