Abstract: This paper presents the fiber effect in the polymer concrete. The concrete is prepared with 10% Bethemcharla stone powder as replacement to cement and 10% of Bisphenol-A polymer to the concrete mixes. The fibers were incorporated to the concrete in the proportion of 0,1 and 2% by volume of specimen. The study mainly focused to evaluate compressive, split, shear and flexural strengths of concrete. Tests conducted on cube, cylinder and beam specimens and from the results it is found that, the fiber seeding to mixes enhances the strength properties. In addition to the mixes, plan cement concrete mix without stone powder and polymer is prepared and tested for the same strengths, this mix is considered as reference mix for comparison purpose. For present experimental work few mathematical models are established to assess strengths in association of cube compressive strength.
