Abstract

This study aims to assess the benefit brought by fibers content, and fiber length on the splitting tensile behavior of sugar palm fibers reinforced concrete composites. Three fiber lengths of 5, 20, and 40 mm in four-fiber content, namely 1%, 2%, 3%, and 4% by a mass ratio fiber per cement, were utilized in this investigation. The values of tensile strength and density are reported for ages up to 28 days. The result observes that the addition of sugar palm fibers increased the tensile strength of concrete and the density of sugar palm fiber in concrete decreases with the addition of sugar palm fiber. The mix of 1% fiber content and 20 mm length fiber gave higher tensile strength compared to other mixes.
