Concrete is a construction material which most usually used in the world. Fiber reinforced concrete[ FRC] is a special concrete in which small and irregular fibers are dispersed homogeneously. The fibers used in FRC may be of dissimilar materials like carbon, steel, polypropylene, glass, asbestos, aramid. The adding of these fibers into concrete can noticeably increase the flexural strength compressive strength, tensile strength, and impact strength of concrete. FRC has found a lot of applications in the field of civil engineering. This work investigates The Influence of glass fiber [GF]content on Concrete Strength . Concrete mixes having a fixed water/cement ratio equals 0.5 and a constant cement content equals 350kg/m3are prepared. GF with 18mm length and four volume fractions of 0%, 0.03%,0.06% and 0.09% are used. The results illustrate that The adding of GF gave a optimistic influence on the strength of plain concrete.
