Abstract. Conventional concrete has a low tensile strength, constrained ductility and little protection from crack propagation. The inward miniaturized scale of cracks, prompting weak disappointment of concrete. Investigations have been carried out in many countries on various mechanical properties, physical performance and durability of cement-based matrices reinforced with naturally occurring fibers including sisal, coconut, jute, bamboo, and wood fibers. Raised natural mindfulness and an expanding worry with an unnatural weather change have invigorated the search for materials that can supplant traditional engineered fiber. Characteristic fiber, for example, sisal strands show up as one of the great options since they are accessible in sinewy structure and can be separated from plant leaves, stalk, and products of the soil at exceptionally low expenses. In this work, the impact of sisal strands on the quality of cement for M25 evaluation has been examined by shifting the level of filaments in concrete. Fiber substance were shifted by 0.05%, 0.10%, 0.15%, 0.20%, 0.25%, 0.30%, 0.35% and 0.40% by volume of cement. Cubes, Cylinder and Prism were cast to assess the Compressive, Split Tensile and Flexural Strength test. Every one of the samples was tested for a time of 28 days curing. The results of fiber reinforced concrete for 28 days curing with a varied percentage of fiber were studied and it has been found that there is significant strength improvement with addition of sisal fiber in concrete.
