Abstract: The presentwork tried to develop suitable proportions for the production of Pineapple LeafFibers (PALF) reinforced Normal Strength Concrete (NSC), an experimental analysiswith a mix ratio of 1:1.84:3.27 for cement: fine aggregates: coarse aggregates with constant water to cement ratio of 0.54. Thetotal volume per mixing batch was calculated of 9 cubes + 9 cylinders + 3 beamsin order to know the number of materials to be used in casting per batch, and the PALF percentage was taken basedon cement weight whereby it starts from the lowest to the maximum as follow 0 ,0.2 , 0.4 , 0.6 , 0.8 , and 1 . The teststhat were done on fresh concrete were compacting factors and workabilityusing the slump test which was carried out on each fresh mix of concrete. The resultsshowed that PALF can be used to improve the Tensile and Flexural properties of NormalStrength Concrete.
