Abstract: Steel Fibre reinforced concrete (SFRC) are maximizes the ductility of Concrete after adding in Concrete and Silica fume increases the density of Concrete[2]. In this investigation we have to determine the combined effect of Steel fibre and silica fume, the main focus of this studies is that to improve the mechanical properties here we use 80 aspect ratio of steel fibre [1] Expansion diverse level of steel fibre and distinctive rate silica smoulder by weight of concrete substance. The droop cone strategy is utilized to decide usefulness [2].By Conducting the experimental test we can determine the flexural strength of steel fibre which is harden concret test[3]. Plain solid asphalts have low flexural quality and strain limit; By utilizing fibre basic qualities are improved and likewise permits decrease of the thickness of the asphalt layer. These better properties are impressive and constrained by qualities of fiber and rate by reducing the thickness of pavement we can minimize the thickness of pavement and gives solidness. Fragility of cement diminished by expansion of steel fiber and density of concrete improves by addition of silica fume. Else it will be brittle in nature. Improvement in such mechanical properties like flexural strength gives better performance in their life span. It will be beneficial for long term operation on Concrete roads[10].
