Experiments have been carried out by several materialslike Fly ash, lime, sand, Kheda dust, Glass fibre for the manufacturing of the brick.The fly ash of ‘F’ category was used as a raw material for making fly ash bricks. The combination of fibre fly ashbrick have different percentage of theGlass fibre adding like 0.2%, 0.4%, 0.6%, 0.8%, 1.0%. In the testing of the fibre fly ash brick there are main two type of the testing is done compressive strength test and water absorption test after 7, 14, 21days. With Changing (increasing) in the percentage of the Glass fibre of compressive strength of the fibre fly ash brick is increase and water absorption is decrease.
