AbstractGlass Fiber strengthened chemical compound Rebar’s (GFRP) has associate rising various solution of steel reinforcement for concrete structures thanks to its upgraded properties like high durability, light-weight, and corrosions resistance. The general purpose of this study is to interchange longitudinal steel with GFRP rebar in Fiber reinforced concrete (FRC) for pier to boost its performance. During this study the proportion of cement sand aggregate and water is 1:2:3:0.60, with the addition of fifty five jute fibers by mass of cement, having forty five millimeter length is used. The mechanical properties (splitting tensile and compressive strengths), are investigated during this study. We have found that compressive strength and split tensile of JFRC specimen is decreased but flexural strength is increased as compared to normal concrete but the axial strength of prototype pier including glass fiber reinforcement is decreased.
