Influence of Novel Cellulose Fiber Based Concrete Compared with Conventional Concrete with Respect to Compressive Strength

Abstract

The main objective of this study is to conduct an experimental analysis of the mechanical characteristics of concrete reinforced with new cellulose fibers. The natural fiber, which had an average length of 30 mm, was blended in at a mass ratio of 2% and 3% with M25 grade concrete. River sand is used as a fine aggregate, and 20 mm blue metal is used as a coarse aggregate. With an increasing proportion of novel cellulose fiber, the compressive strength of the created concrete samples with cellulosic fiber reinforcement gradually increased. The results might be examined using the independent t-test reports created by the SPSS (Statistical Package for the Social Sciences) program version 26. Using the independent-samples-t-test method, the statistical report of the conventional and modified concrete was compared. G-power value p < 0.05 significant p-value i.e., p = 0.000 There isn’t much of a difference. The mean value (27.4633, 30.2422), standard deviation (1.07541, 0.91737), and mean standard error (0.25348, 0.21623) were obtained using group statistics using SPSS version 26. As an innovative building material, the commercial usage of natural fiber-reinforced concrete for interior or exterior pavements and flooring slabs is possible. Additionally, this study comes to the conclusion that novel cellulose fiber reinforced concrete has superior compressive strength than regular concrete. This might improve durability and lessen shrinkage fractures.
