Abstract: Concrete is the most significant material for construction and by incorporation of various industrial by products may improve its properties. Normally fine aggregates have been obtained from natural sources like river beds, now days there is a lot of scarcity for getting natural aggregates. So to overcome this problem, aggregates are partially replaced with alternative materials like bottom ash, recycled aggregates and some natural aggregates .In present study, fine aggregate was replaced with bottom ash and steel fibres are used to improve strength characteristics of concrete. M25 grade concrete was prepared for control specimens, and also bottom ash based fiber reinforced concrete specimens were prepared in different proportions 0%, 10%, 20%, 30% and 40% with bottom ash by weight of fine aggregate and a 1.0% and 1.5% of steel fibers were added by weight of cement. To examine bottom ash based steel fiber reinforced concrete specimens were tested under flexural, split tensile, and compression. The mechanical property of bottom ash based steel fiber reinforced concrete was compared with control mix to examine optimal combination of bottom ash and fibers. It was noticed that 10% replacement of bottom ash has shown the maximum improvement in Compressive, split tensile and flexural strength. Hence, bottom ash based steel fiber reinforced concrete can be used as construction material.
