Fiber reinforced concrete is reinforced by a small amount of short randomly dispersed into cement concrete and this composite material is superior to normal plain concrete with respect to flexural strength, impact resistance and ductility. But the consistency of fiber reinforced concrete is extremely decreased by adding fiber so that in some cases it becomes difficult to place and mold by the ordinary method. These phenomena are observed irrespective of kinds of fibers used. This paper studied on the effects on compression strength by using polyvinyl alcohol (PV A) as fiber reinforced concrete. Literature review on the characteristics of PV A fiber and the advantages it would bring to concrete is studied. The method and the amount of fiber used were investigated. Experimental lab also has been conducted to test the compressive strength of concrete with PV A fiber.
