The interest in the use of fibers for the reinforcement of composites has increased during the last several years. A combination of high strength, stiffness and thermal resistance favorably characterizes the fiibers. In this study, the results of the Strength properties of Polypropylene fiber reinforced concrete have been presented. The compressive strength, splitting tensile strength of concrete samples made with different fibers amounts varies from 0%,0.5%,1% 1.5% and 2.0% were studied. The samples with added Polypropylene fibers of 1.5 % showed better results in comparison with the others.
