In this modern age, civil engineering constructions have their own structural and durabilityrequirements. Fiber Reinforced Concrete (FRC) is a composite material made primarily from hydrauliccements, aggregates and discrete reinforcing fibers. Fiber incorporation in concrete, mortar and cement pasteenhances many of the engineering properties of these materials such as fracture toughness, flexural strength,resistance to fatigue, impact, thermal shock and spalling.The FRC is a composite material made of cement, fineand coarse aggregates and discontinuous discrete steel fibers. Recently developed an analytical model topredict the shear, tensional strength and bending torsion behavior of fiber reinforced concrete beam withexperimental substantiation. However, very little work has been reported in combined torsion and shear.Similarly to beam with conversional reinforcement, the presence of shear may significance influence ontensional strength of fiber concrete beams. Present paper investigates the mechanical properties like as shearstrength, and torsion strength of concrete with different types of steel fiber with constant volume fractions anddifferent aspect ratio.A primary finding emerging from the experimental program was that the placement offibers, increased load carrying capacity of high strength fiber reinforced concrete [HSFRC] beam. Ductility,toughness significantly improved.
