Abstract: Concrete is the most widely used product in the construction sector mainly because of its properties and its capability to be moulded to any size. Plain concrete has low tensile strength and forms internal micro cracks. It has been proven that with the addition of natural fibers and synthetic fibers in concrete, it helps in the durability and functionality of structure. The steel fibers are added to the concrete in very low volume doses and it has been effective in decreasing the plastic shrinkage in cracking and also acting as a crack arrestor. In this journal, experimental analysis on steel fiber reinforced concrete is done on M30 and M50 mix with 0.5%, 1%, 1.5% and 2% volume fraction of steel fiber content and is compared with samples of 0% steel fiber content and these samples are investigated on their compressive, split tensile and flexural strengths. 
Keywords: Compressive strength, Flexural Strength, Resistance, Steel fibers, Tensile strength.
