Abstract: In the field of construction hollow sections have found wide application due to its advantageous properties. Many research works have been conducted to study the flexural and tensional behaviour of hollow reinforced concrete beams. But its behaviour using High-Performance Concrete (HPC) has been poorly noticed. In this study an attempt made to evaluate Hollow reinforced beams made with HPC and reinforced with hybrid steel fibres. The flexural behaviour of hollow beams based on the effect of Carbon fibre reinforced polymer (CFRP) has also been explored. A comparison is made between the results obtained from analysis using ANSYS software with the experimental test result. It is noticeable that the flexural strength, its ductility, and stiffness is not affected but the self-weight of the structure is reduced due to hollow beams.
