Abstract. Compared compared to concrete in a construction, the essential portion of the structure has higher weight, however steel utilised as reinforcement has no weight. To address this problem, the Glass Fibre Reinforced Concrete (GFRC) material was developed. Polymers and glass fibre are impregnated in the cementation framework of GFRC, which is a material. Glass fibre, Fly ash, silica sand, Portland cement and water are all components of concrete. The glass content, mix procedure, and casting process all have an impact on the qualities of GFRC concrete. We present the fibre glass as well as other characteristic synthetic chemicals in GFRC to develop a material that is extremely solid and adaptableto construction.By this research, using 0.5 percent and 0.1 percent glass fibres increases compressive and flexural strength of concrete for 7,14 and 28 days with no admixtures.
