AbstractIn this research, the effect of adding fillings of steel resulting from factory of smithery was studied. The fiber was added with two different percentages to the ordinary and polymer concrete to study their effects on some of the properties of both type of concrete like compressive strength, flexural strength and density. Two different percentages of fiber by volume of concrete (0.5%, 1.0%) were added to concrete mixes. A reference mix was also made.
The results showed that adding of fillings of steel with these percentages lead to improvements in both compressive strength and flexural strength of polymer concrete with the increase of its percentage while it's less effect on these properties of ordinary concrete. An improvement in flexural strength appeared more clearly in both type of concrete. Significant increase in density was noted in both types of concrete.
