Abstract. Plain concrete retains veritably low tensile strength, limited rigidity and little resistance to cracking. Cracks are innately present in concrete and their poor tensile strength is due to propagation of similar micro-crack filaments when added at certain chance in the concrete to ameliorate the strain parcels as well as crack resistance, to rigidity as flexure strength and durability. Substantly, the studies and exploration of fiber corroborating concrete has been diverted to sword filaments. In recent times, glass filaments have also become available which are free from erosion problems associated with sword filaments. In this design, examination was conducted using glass fiber with concrete. Anti crack, hyperactive dissipation, alkali resistance glass fiber of periphery 14 microns, having an aspect ratio of 857 were employed in probabilities, varying from 0.33 to 1 chance weight in concrete and the parcels of this fiber corroborated concretelike contraction,flexure strength, durability,and tensile strength was studied.
