Abstract: Steel nail plays an important role in people’s daily lives and joins wooden materials, brush and construction structures. This paper examines the prospective directions of using steel nail in concrete composites for structures. The samples are cast to assess the compressive strength and flexural strength by adding steel nail to the concrete matrix. In this investigation, five different proportions of steel nails in varying percentage of 3%, 6%, 9%, 12% and 15% was used. The results showed that the effect of the steel nail on concrete increases compressive and flexural strength significantly. The study aims to optimize the use of concrete steel nails.
Keywords: Compressive Strength, Flexural Strength, Steel Nail.
