Abstract: Paper From the past studies on Steel fibre reinforced concrete, it has been established that the performance of concrete can be enhanced by incorporating fibres from waste materials from the commercial benefit and environmental aspect.. Reinforcing concrete with steel fibres (SFRC) increases the tensile strength of concrete thereby improving its brittle behaviour.The major applications of SFRC being in tunnel lining,underground structures,flooring. The analysis presented states that the light weight concrete when incorporated with the waste steel from reinforcement and formworks with different fibre contents yield the comparable outcomes as the already studied fibre reinforced concrete.
