عنوان مقاله [English]
The use of fibers in concrete in order to improve concrete properties and mechanical behavior has started four decades ago and is growing. Fibers in concrete reduce the brittleness and provids ductile behavior of concrete. Fiber may be of plant species, artificial and metral which can improve mechanical properties of concrete under compressive load, tensile, flexural,shear, dynamic and hit, as well shrinkage and creep, resistance to freezing and thaw, abrasion and erosion and can create a uniformmaterial. In this research we have studied the impact of palm fiber so – called Cis which is abundant in Balouchistan on mechanical properties of concrete. For this purpose, we used ac laboratory method in which samples with varoous shapes and different percentages of palm fiber (CIS) have been made and different properties of concrete have been tested. The result showed that concrete made with broken fibers 2%, shear fiber 2%, waste fiber 1% has a comperssive strength greater than control sample and concrete with broken fiber 2% has higher tensile stergth than the control sample.
