Abstract: Annealed wire is easy to get and less expensive compared to the steel fibre that usually used in fibre reinforced concrete applications. AW-fibre used as replacement of steel fibre by cutting annealed wire into pieces by size of 30 mm. The use of annealed wire fibre (AW-fibre) in concrete mix is to strengthen the shear capacity of concrete. This research outcomes is based on a set of laboratory experimental works done to numbers of double L concrete specimens size of 30 cm x 20 cm x 7.5 cm loaded under direct shear force by a universal compression machine. The specimens were constructed from 25 MPa AW-fibre concrete, using 0%, 4%, 6%, 8%, 10%, and 12% percentage of fibre content to the weight of cement proportion. The result from this research shows that by addition of 8% of AW-fibre can produced a maximum improvement of the direct shear strength capacity of this type of AW-fibre concrete.
