This paper investigates the mechanical properties (compressive strength, splitting tensile strength and flexural toughness) of polypropylene fiber reinforced self-compacting concrete (PFRSCC). The effect of the incorporation of polypropylene fiber on the mechanical properties of PFRSCC is determined. Four point bending tests on beam specimens were performed to evaluate the flexural properties of PFRSCC. Test results indicate that flexural toughness and ductility are remarkably improved by the addition of polypropylene fiber.
