Sustainability of concrete is affected by cracks which are proved to be detrimental for both mechanical and durability properties as they tend to propagate under the influence of loads and result in entry of aggressive agents from surrounding environment. Polypropylene fiber in concrete acts as crack arrester along with altering the fresh and hardened properties due to improper packing and dispersion issues which has adverse effect on concrete. The effects of polypropylene fiber concrete are reviewed in the following section based on study of workability, compressive strength, and cracks. The issues are encountered to certain extent by combined usage of fiber and pozzolanic materials. This combination contributes to strength and durability along with effective utilization of industrial waste products.
