Abstract: Concrete is the key material used in various types of construction, from home to super structures. In advancement of civil engineering, concrete played important role. Characteristics such as Compressive strength, tensile strength and flexural strength, durability, impermeability, fire resistance and abrasion resistance are based on the selection of the base materials and admixtures. In the present investigation M35 Grade concrete is tried with triple blend technique of Ground Granulated Blast Furnace Slag and Fly-ash as partial replacement of ordinary Portland cement. In addition of these, fibres such as Glass fibre and Poly propylene fibre are used as admixture at various proportions and it’s ranging from 1%, 1.5% and 2% for glass fibre and 0.35kg/m3,0.7kg/m3and 0.9kg/m3 for polypropylene fibre. The fibres proportions are added to the total volume of the concrete Fibres are added to improve the strength characteristics. This fibre reinforced triple blend cement exploits the beneficial characteristics of both Pozzolonic materials in producing a better concrete.
