Abstract: Steel fiber reinforced concretes (SFRC) are typically prepared by adding the fiber along with the other concrete ingredients in the mixing operation. At fiber contents in excess of 2 volume percent, the SFRC becomes difficult or impossible to mix and place. In as much as improvements in concrete properties attributed to the fibers increase as a function of increasing fiber content, this situation places a limit on the ultimate property development in SFRC prepared using the premix approach. Recently, a procedure has been developed wherein steel fiber contents up to 20 volume percent have been provided. Slurry Infiltrated Fiber Concrete (SIFCCN) composites possess outstanding strength, ductility, and crack spall resistant properties. In the present project, it is aimed at to study a new type of material, termed SIFCON and to determine experimentally the strength characteristics of SIFCON with 8, 10 and 12 fibre volume fractions. The results obtained are studied and compared with values of strengths of Conventional SIFCON concrete.
