Languages of publication
Galvanized Iron wire is considered as a low-cost wire. In this study, this wire is mixed with black stone chips concrete and this concrete is recognized as fiber concrete. Fifty-four specimens are tested to detect the compressive behavior of fiber concrete and normal concrete. The mix ratio variations are also adopted for this study. The differences between the compressive behavior of fiber concrete and normal concrete are recorded. 7, 14 and 28 curing days are considered to investigate this study. Some recommendations are also attached at the end portion of this study.
