This paper presents an overview of the effect of polypropylene (PP) fibers on various properties of concrete in fresh and hardened state such as compressive strength, tensile strength, flexural strength, workability, bond strength, fracture properties, creep strain, impact and chloride penetration.
Performance of Polypropylene Fibre Reinforced Concrete Milind V. Mohod1 1 Assistant Professor, Department of Civil Engineering ,Prof. Ram Meghe Institute of Technology And Research,Badnera, Amravati, India Abstract: The paper deals with the effects of addition of various proportions of polypropylene fibers on the.However, research on concrete-filled hollow sections (CFHS) using foamed concrete remains ongoing. Therefore, this study was conducted to determine the strength of reinforced fibrous foamed CFHSs. Two types of fibre, namely, steel and polypropylene fibres, were used. A short-column specimen was prepared and tested under compression load.Polypropylene fibre burns and presents much the same risks as most other man-made textile fibres. It is difficult to ignite, and is defined as combustible but not highly inflammable. It can, however, be rendered flame-retardant by the incorporation of additives.
This study investigated the effects of polypropylene fibre (PF) reinforcement on the mechanical behaviour of clay soil. Using clay soil and polypropylene fibres from China’s Inner Mongolia and Hebei Provinces, respectively, a series of soil samples with 0%, 1.5%, 2.25%, and 3% PF content by soil weight were subjected to compaction, shear strength, consolidation, California bearing ratio, and.
To investigate and understand the influence of the mixture of polypropylene fibre and lime on the engineering properties of a clayey soil, nine groups of treated soil specimens were prepared and tested at three different percentages of fibre content (i.e. 0.05%, 0.15%, 0.25% by weight of the parent soil) and three different percentages of lime (i.e. 2%, 5%, 8% by weight of the parent soil).
Polypropylene fibre has been recognized as one of the fastest growing synthetic fibres. There has been a significant rise in the demand for non-woven fabrics in the past few years, which, in turn, is driving the growth of the polypropylene market.

The fibre contents are in the low range (i.e., steel fibre volume content up to 1.2% and PP fibre up to 0.3%). This paper is the first part of the research. It mainly deals with the proper aggregate gradation, the minimum cementitious materials content, the proper combination of fibre sizes, and contents based on the general properties of the hybrid fibre concrete under static loading.

In this project, the experimental investigation conducted on polypropylene fibre of length 12mm and 24mm, having an aspect ratio of around 800 was employed in an equal percentage of 0.5% by weight in cast concrete and tests like compressive strength on cubes, flexural strength on beams and split tensile strength on cylinders conducted.
Nonwoven fabric is a fabric-like material made from staple fibre (short) and long fibres (continuous long), bonded together by chemical, mechanical, heat or solvent treatment.The term is used in the textile manufacturing industry to denote fabrics, such as felt, which are neither woven nor knitted. Some non-woven materials lack sufficient strength unless densified or reinforced by a backing.
