Abstract: The fiber used in the concrete to increases the structural integrity of the member. It is one of the emerging techniques used in the construction industry. In this study the effective utilization of High Performance Fiber Reinforced Concrete (HPFRCC) beams has been experimental investigated. The experimental investigation has been conducted on different steel fibers (Hooked, Crimpled and Hybrid) under cyclic loading. The behaviour of HPFRCC beams are compared with the conventional beams. Totally four numbers of specimens were cast with different content of fiber concrete and compared conventional concrete. The fibers are added to the concrete by volume base replacement of concrete. The silica fume and super plasticizers were used to modify the properties of concrete. Single point loading were carried out for all the specimens and the beam specimens were subjected to cyclic loading. The load deflection behaviour of fibers is compared with the conventional concrete. The ultimate load carrying capacity, energy absorption and ductility of hybrid fiber reinforced concrete is higher than the conventional concrete by 5-10%.
