Abstract: This paper aims at studying the mechanical properties of short rigid E-glass fiber reinforced concrete. The properties include compressive, splitting tensile and flexural strength of concrete. The fiber volume fractions were varied from 0 percent to 2 percent with an increment of 0.5 percent. The compressive strength peaked at volume fraction of 1.5 percent and was about 22 percentage greater than the control mix concrete. The splitting tensile strength improved with increase in fiber content progressively. The flexural strength also increased with increase in fiber volume fraction with a peak value of about 35 percent as compared to the control mix concrete.
