Civil engineering projects deal with design, construction and maintenance plans of physical and natural built environment such as canals, bridges, apartments etc and the ancient Romans are expertise in doing their civil engineering projects.

There are more types of building materials such as bricks, cement, clay, black soil, water etc whereas concrete is the most versatile material and famous for cheap cost, high fire resistance, high water resistance and low maintenance. Water, concrete, cements are the mixtures that compose a perfect concrete and addition of certain fibers in the concrete makes the concrete more resistant to cracking.
For past 30 years, people are using many fibers such as metal, glass and organic materials in adding with the concrete to enhance the durability and to avoid cracking. The process of cracking occurs due to,
- Presence of thermal gradient on concrete surface
- Drying shrinkage
- Plastic shrinkage
- Other environmental factors.
In order to overcome these problems, final year civil engineering students undergo many civil projects to improve the concrete properties by adding fibers. Concrete fibers such as polypropylene fiber are most commonly used for reinforcing concrete mixture and to provide basic strength. The strong study about propylene fiber tells that it increases the tensile strength and compressive strength of about 10%. The proper composition of mixture is more important and these mixtures play an important role in decreasing the drying shrinkage, water shrinkage etc. For better understanding, a case study is taken and a helix, revolutionary concrete reinforcing additive is examined for certain years and the advantages of helix are also explained.
