Abstract: Today concrete is most widely used construction material due to its good compressive strength and durability. Any laxity in curing will badly affect the strength and durability of concrete. Self-curing concrete is one of the special concretes in mitigating insufficient curing due to human negligence paucity of water in arid areas, inaccessibility of structures in difficult terrains and in areas where the presence of fluorides in water will badly affect the characteristics of concrete. The present study involves the use of shrinkage reducing admixture polyethylene glycol (PEG 400) in concrete which helps in self curing and help better hydration and hence strength. In conventional concrete, micro-cracks develop before structure is loaded because of drying shrinkage and other causes of volume change. In the FRC, a numbers of small fibers are dispersed and distributed randomly in the concrete at the time of mixing, and thus improve concrete properties in all directions. The present study, compare compressive strength of conventional concrete, fiber reinforced concrete (polypropylene fiber) and self curing concrete using PEG400 in different % for M20 and M25 grade of concrete . It is find through this experimental study the compressive strength of self curing concrete using PEG400 is stronger than that of conventional concrete and using polypropylene fiber in fiber reinforced concrete. IndexTerms— Polyethylene glycol PEG400, Polypropylene fiber, Workability, Compressive tests.
