it should be noted that high strength concrete is also very brittle, which is a undesirable property(Rossi, 50, 2001). For this purpose, concrete has been experimented with several materials in order to remove the brittleness. One such material is the fiber material, which is added to concrete in order to improve its properties. Fiber reinforced concrete was introduced in order to reduce the brittleness of concrete. With its enhanced and improved properties, extensive research and studies have been conducted on it. In recent times, fiber reinforced Reactive Powder Concrete has been subjected to research and development.
As compared to conventional concrete, Reactive Power Concrete is considered to be a new construction material. It exhibits brilliant and outstanding properties such as high strength, toughness, durability, etc. because of these properties, RPC is considered to be an ideal construction material for construction because of its high compressive strength and durability to withstand high tensile forces (Rossi, 51, 2001). RPC and steel bars are used to make reinforced RPC, which has significant conceptual and practical importance. Countries such as China, Koreas, Russia, France, etc have experimented with RPC in order to study and investigate its properties. It was first introduced in the early nineties (Richard, Cheyrezy, 1509, 1995).
The study will employ the used of steel fiber reinforced RPC, which will be developed from the materials which are available locally. The material will be subjected to wide ranging tests in order to understand and evaluate its material properties. Additionally, time dependent properties will be analyzed.
Reactive Powder Concrete is considered to high strength material, which has cementing properties. It is made from fine powders and has silica fume content. At the same time, it has a low water cement ratio as compared to normal

This investigation compared the performance of SFRC and plain concrete. The concrete was cast as beams and cubes reinforced with different steel fibers at varying ratios, with and without reinforcing bars, and subjected to various tests for examining their flexural and compressive strengths.
Diabetic status was not associated with either homocysteine quartiles or CRP levels. The implications of the results are discussed below. Why were the results non-significant? What roles do these additional factors play, substantively, that would make no association possible?

The non-working women gave more importance to good for family followed by taste, ease of preparation and time saving, whereas the working women had some other point of view.
Laborers, managers and executives alike establish “comfort zones” that are difficult to break. The case follows John Smith as he first studies the potential benefits of refocusing production and logistics strategies before promoting the idea to top management.
Besides Brazil, the program is operating in Argentina, Libya, and Thailand, with possible commitments from North Korea. The ability to provide cost-effective computing solutions for millions of children in developing nations is seen as an integral step in
Flash floods are sudden thus they are hard to prepare for or even respond to. Unfortunately, the occurrence of flooding is on the increase in Europe and some parts of America2. Some organizations have managed to prepare an integrated approach to flood
