Abstract: Steel fibre for reinforcing concrete is defined as short, discrete lengths of steel fibres with an aspect ratio (ratio of length to diameter) from about 20 to 100, with different cross-sections, and that are sufficiently small to be randomly dispersed in an unhardened concrete mixture using the usual mixing procedures. Glass fibres reinforced polymer composites have been prepared by various manufacturing technology and are widely used for various applications. Glass fibres are having excellent properties like high strength, flexibility, stiffness and resistance to chemical harm. Objective of this to compare the check performance of glass and steel fibres, different percentages of 0.25%, 0.5%, 0.75%, 1%, and 1.25% were used. 1.5% 1.75% And 2% for concrete of M30 grade. To compare the fresh properties of fibre-reinforced concrete to those of conventional concrete. To compare fibre-reinforced concrete with ordinary concrete in terms of compressive strength and split tensile strength. Studying the behaviour of reinforced concrete blocks fortified with steel and glass fibres is the main goal and the methodology of this to research if steel and glass reinforcement for concrete is appropriate. The study used a comprehensive approach that included selecting materials, preparing concrete mixes, testing physical and mechanical properties, and evaluating environmental sustainability. The results were analysed using statistical methods to determine the significance of the differences observed between the various concrete mixes. The rigorous experimental approach and statistical analysis provided reliable data to support the study's findings.

Keywords: steel and glass fibre, compressive strength, split tensile strength.
