Abstract: The present work is enhancement of near surface characteristics for hybrid fiber reinforced concrete (aspect ratio 40+100). Here in this research work an attempt has made to study water absorption values for different types of fiber reinforced concrete, which are having different aspect ratios like 40, 100 and 40+100. Concrete mix along with fibers are casted and cured for 28days. Both water absorption test and sorptivity tests carried on hardened concrete. The main objective is to check variation in absorption values due to addition of different types of fibers. Here totally five different types of fibers are considered like steel fiber, Galvanized iron fibres, High density polyethylene fibres, waste plastic fiber and polypropylene fibers Experimental investigation shows that except polyprolene hybrid mix concrete other hybrid mixes has showed good results. But as compared to mono fiber reinforced concrete hybrid fiber reinforced concrete has showed better results. This research was aimed to provide benchmark for future research works on near surface characteristics of hybrid fiber reinforced concrete.
Key words: Aspect ratio, water absorption and hybrid fiber
