 It has been widely accepted that in concrete industry the conventional concrete mixes also suffer to plastic shrinkage during the setting period and even can often lead to cracking. Hence mixing of relatively small quantity of fibre can satisfactorily diminish this crunch by regulating the early age plastic shrinkage cracking. This paper discusses in detail a comprehensive review on various aspects of Glass and Steel Fibre Reinforced Self Compacting Concrete in regards to behaviour, applications and performance.
