Abstract: The article analyses the mechanical stability of concrete with additions of rayon fibre by determining the fresh property like workability and strength properties like compressive strength, split tensile strength and flexural strength of concrete of grade M30.The effect of rayon fibre on reinforced concrete in variations of 0%, 0.1%, 0.15% and 0.2% was studied. This work includes the casting and testing of rayon fibre reinforced concrete. The test was conducted after 7 days and 28 days and the results were compared with conventional concrete.The mix design of strength of 30 N/mm2 was implemented using Indian Standard method.Concrete is extensively used in the construction industry. Traditional concrete is incapable of taking higher tensile stress and hence fails upon tensile stress. The Rayon fibre induced concrete is an excellent substitute for this problem. This paper reports on the results of an experimental investigation for assessing the behavior of rayon fibre in reinforced concrete and alsoto study the properties of materials and procedure of mix design of fiber reinforced concrete. The main motive is to determine the properties of concrete by adding rayon fibre to the concrete in certain percentage and comparing it with the traditional concreteand physical characteristics of rayon fibres. Rayon fibre is a manufactured fibre made out of natural sources such as wood, agricultural products that are regenerated and cellulose fibre, which can be used to enhance the bending characteristics of concrete.Micro fibres like rayon provide flexibility and also act as reinforcement. Rayon fibre reinforced concrete can be used in the construction of mega structures.
